Btl No: 319736 JJ 18-8
Tasted: Mar 2013
Now those aromas have definitely got some age to them! Big, spicy grains mingle with a lot of sweet sherry and sweet Bourbon oak notes. Serious Pot Still spices go head-to-head to head with the oak and win! Very complex and evolving with some slightly tropical banana and apricot emerging with a lithe perfumed edge. With time some leather and tobacco notes join in. A seriously brilliant whisky, with all the components, grain, whisky and oak all playing a part.

The palate is soft and silky with the sherried fruit showing first along with hints of leather and tobacco. This is followed by the gentle, but biting grain and vanilla oak, which does grip the middle a tad giving the impression of less complexity. Grainier and quite spicy on the finish. That combination of pot still and grain gives it a very austere Bushmills kind of feel to the proceedings. Ok, so it has a little bit of a wobble on the middle as the oak grips but that finish is sensational.
