46% abv, €65, single malt, non-chill filtered, natural colour
Palate: hay, rather young, fresh apple-sauce, slightly dry, spicy, white pepper, a thin layer of light spring-honey, floral, clover, nuts, walnuts
Finish: strong, medium long, hot, a hint of marmalade-like bitter
Conclusion: The bitter finish is present for quite some time, and overpowers the otherwise nice nose and palate completely, which is a shame. Quite out of balance.
Extra info: All spirit used in this series was distilled on the 15th of January 2002 and filled into ex-Bourbon barrels. On the 29th of June 2011, all these casks were transferred into four different types of ex-Sherry casks. Bottling took place on the 20th of August 2014, without any addition of caramel colouring of chill filtration. Only 1500 bottles of each expression will be available worldwide.
