As you might have guessed, this is matured solely in first fill American oak barrels. Lots of flavours on the nose. White fruits, vanilla, coconuts, burned caramel, burned oak and just a hint of flowers. Very impressive considering the low ABV.
In the taste, the first fill casks really shows off. Bourbon meets Single Malt. Burned oak, vanilla, spices, but with the elegance of The Glenlivet. The wood really comes forward in the finish. Some fruity sweetness as well, especially the sweetness from over ripe pears!
