This is from the series “A Whisky Anthology” and is from an unknown Speyside distillery, and it is a vatting of two Bourbon hogsheads. 1110 bottles were made, and this was bottle #135. Young, malty and citrusy in the smell. Some green apples and notes of pineapple as well. Young but fresh.
Some vanilla sweetness comes forward in the taste alongside a little bite from the alcohol. Otherwise it is mainly white fruits dominating the palate. The finish is medium to long with hints of burned sugar joining the vanilla.
A bit too young in my opinion. It is like it haven’t really got to know the cask yet. Well, we are all different, and I have served this for several friends and many of those finds it very refreshing. I will give this 79/100 (19/20/20/20).
