Barrel: Barrel Finished with Oak Staves
Water added: No
Nose: Sweet with a thick caramel smell and hints of honey and oak.
Mouth Feel: Thick, velvet and smooth.
Flavor: Smooth and sweet. Flavors of caramel, honey and oak with hints of malt.
Finish: Lingering smooth sweetness with oak.
Overall Impressions: Overall a bit harsher than my usual scotch. The malty/caramel flavors are thicker, heavier and sweeter. A very nice drink. It’s well balanced and quite a big step up from the run-of-the-mill bourbon and a nice change in pace from my typical evening dram.
