10 years old, distilled 6th October 2006, 61.2% abv, Refill Ex-Bourbon Barrel, 168 bottles
The nose has peach, pear, honey, floral notes (pot pourri?) and hints of tinned pineapple chunks. The mouthfeel is decent, with a little cling. The body has tinned pineapple chunks, lavender, rum soaked raisins and hint of cardamom. The finish is pear, pineapple and a little liquorice.
Water brings out thin, rapidly dissipating whorling which settles into brief mottling. The nose gains vanilla, and the peach is a bit more dominant. The gains more pineapple, and loses the cardamom. The finish is unchanged.
A great dram.
