First Fill Bourbon Barrel
Dist July 2008 Btl: 2018
Tasted: Jul 2018
The nose is fresh, gristy, citric and heathery with hints of cereal, white peach, grass, apricot and honey. The tannins are quite noticeable and display a very gritty character, but also some pleasantly soft vanillins.

The palate is soft and rounded with vanilla, gritty, tight tannins and a touch of dried, almost grainy fruit, but that graininess is probably more down to the oak influence. Hints of heather, apple and apricot come through on the middle. The alcohol really intensifies the grittiness and masks the finish. Subtle dried fruit after-taste.

With water the nose becomes quite perfumed and sugary with more emphasis on the white fruit and less on the oak. However the palate is the other way around, with the oak being overly dominant and very creamy, in a clotted cream-like way. Touch of wood spice on the finish.
