Primary Cask: American oak

Bourbon Hogshead 804348
Dist: Jun 2007 Btl: Dec 2018
Tasted: Nov 2020
Initially the nose is aromatic and floral with green apple, apricot, lime, dusty barley and minerals. Hints of vanilla oak appear. The alcohol although not intrusive does make the nose feel quite austere, especially in conjunction with the citrus.

The palate is quite alcoholic but its holding the sweet malt, barley, lime, apricot and apple in check. Subtle vanilla oak appears and the finish is masked and austere with lingering herbal/ green fruit. and gristy barley.

Water brings out the fragrant summer flowers. Lightly honeyed/ waxy now with hints of apple skin. Not a huge amount of oak, so the purity of the spirit character is evident. The palate shows more honey and the juicy apricot and apple fruit has been released. Gristy barley and Sauvignon Blanc-eque herbal notes follow along with a touch of caramel on the middle. Long, juicy, barley'd and mineral finish.
