The oak is much more dominant in the taste. Rich white fruits and syrupy notes – almost sticky! The oak is still the main ingredient in the finish. Not overpowering – just the main focus. Some vanilla comes forward, as a great touch to the experience.
The first impression (the smell) was the best about this whisky! Great balance between the oak, rich white fruits, sweetness and citrusy notes. It got a bit one sided in the taste. Well, not that I found it bad – I actually quite enjoyed it. I will give this 85/100 (22/21/21/21).
