10 years old, distilled 8th May 2008, 59.3% abv, Second Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel, 225 bottles, dram price B
Water brings out thin, rapidly expanding whorling that lingers for a while as mottling. The nose gains marzipan and butterscotch, and loses the rosewater. The body gains marzipan and more lemon, and loses the grass. The finish gains butterscotch.
A very sweety dram, with decent balance.
One for spring afternoons.
Technical score: 4/5
Personal preference: I'd have another dram.
