1992-2015 - 456 bottles. Maturation in bourbon hogshead.
Oranges, green apples, dried fruits, green grass, bananas and vanilla. The palate displays more greenish elements, fresh mint leaves, green grass in introduction, then a beautiful bowl of various fruits including oranges, cherries, pineapple, bananas and apples. Beautiful oily texture that supports the flavors well and gives a lot of mouth coating to preserve alcohol. Flambé pears, honey, pineapple, oranges, wild berries and cassonnade in the final then flown with spices and pepper.
A great whiskey. I often present a whiskey as "complex", but here it is really something! Nose: Fruits of the fields with a good dose of blackberries and a touch of vanilla. Palate: A beautiful finish in the mouth marked by burnt oak, then citrus, kiwi, caramel, vanilla and ... Celery salt. Finale: A beautiful length, floral, spicy with a touch of smoke.
Oranges and leather, green grapes, dates and vanilla. Dark fruit, simple syrup. Beautiful attractive presentation. Green apples and just as green grass. Palate: Fresh cream, grilled malt, apples and pears. Oranges and oak, cinnamon and honey. Good alcohol punch, well coated with a thick fruit syrup. Finish: Sweet, peppery and woody, with hints of oranges, honey, berries and vanilla. Return of the pear. Balance: Solid, solid, solid. This is a great example of good aging without necessarily falling into exclusive sherry casks.
