The wine casks are a bit more dominant in the taste. The vanilla mixes with some spices and ginger. The finish is actually rather long, and leaves you with the sweetness… Did I mention that it is a very sweet whisky?
I am normally not into red wine matured whisky, but this is good. The wine casks are assisting the whiskey, not overpowering it! It is very sweet, so you’d have to like the sweet grain type of whiskies, but then you get some bang for your bucks! I will rate this 86/100 (22/21/22/21).
