Dist: Sept 2007 Btl: 2019
Tasted: Mar 2019
Dense, rich aromas of dark toffee and nutty dried fruit. Quite aromatic with gritty Bourbon oak and rye-like spices. Hints of vanilla, digestive biscuits, marzipan and dark malty fruit follow. There’s no distillery character but it is a fascinating melding of casks. Late herbal new French oak-like notes.

The palate is dense but edgy with herbal dried fruit and again an almost rye-like herbal character. Quite dry and tannic with gritty American oak but some golden syrup notes balance. Masked and dry on the finish with lingering herbal dried fruit and toasty French oak-like notes.

Water brings out a touch of lemon and tangerine on the nose but it’s still relatively dark and malty. The herbal notes have morphed into a sort of Pot Pourri-like aroma. The palate is still quite herbal but a touch lighter with malt and nutty dried fruit. Still quite chewy with lingering coffee and herbal fruit. Same toasty, French oak-like finish.
