More intense in the taste. The red wine maturation starts to shine through. Loads of red berries, a little dried fruits, oak and hints of tannins. Unfortunately, not much happens in the finish, other than the initial flavours… At least it stays for a while with the sweetness most dominant.
In my opinion, it is a fine consistent dram, but if you don´t care much about wine cask matured whiskies, you should probably stay clear of this - or at least try it before buying! I, however, enjoyed it and will give this 84/100 (21/21/21/21).
