The whisky has spent 3 years in a Bourbon cask. Polished brass. Thick, oily peat at first before a dryish / mildly fruity nose which is also slightly grassy. Sweeter in later inhalations revealing sponge cake, wax, oil (linseed?) followed by hints of dried apple, straw bale and vanilla after five minutes aeration. An odd yet appealing combination. Gentle yet fresh delivery with crisp / grassy malt and subtle herbal-tea like flavours. An unusual arrangement. Keeps you guessing. 46% Alc./Vol.
