Aged in bourbon casks. Nantou Distillery, Taiwan.
I admit that I did not expect anything from this whiskey, which left room for any positive and favorable surprise. Unlike Patrick, I loved this tropical and festive presentation, fruity with excess and offering a nice overall balance. We agree that it will not be the whiskey of the century, but the tasting experience is really nice and worth the detour. Pleasant on the nose with this blend of citrus fruits, lemons and oranges, pears, bananas, vanilla and honey. We are not in the innovation but the design and presentation are really good. Over time, the mixture is a little more disciplined and looks more like fruit salad. The use of bourbon cask jumps in the nose and mouth. The texture is a little diluted, but generally pleasant and the flavors are well arranged; icing sugar, banana peel, pears, honey, citrus, lemon, malted cereals. The finish is enhanced by spices and an unexpected dryness. It may be the need for a tropical or Mediterranean memory that I missed this return of vacation but I liked this unpretentious whiskey but the presentation honest and flafla.
Not bad, but very monotonous. I have already tasted hundreds of whiskeys like this, and I have not remembered them. In short, it's good, but not enough to give me the taste to take me a glass of whiskey. To keep as a cocktail base. Nose: Light sweet malt flavor reminiscent of Speyside whiskey without personality. Palate: Always slightly sweet malt, with some vanilla and typical spices of a bourbon oak barrel. Finish: Medium length, marked by the oak that has soaked in bourbon.
