10 years old, distilled 3rd June 2004, 57.0% abv, first fill ex-bourbon barrel, 233 bottles
The nose is sharp and full of citrus - with a little dusty old book at the back of the nose. The body has pear drops, apple, coconut and a little acetone. The mouth-feel is thin. The finish is sharp and sweet - vanilla and sherbet.
After water (which whorls tightly, but quickly dissipates) the nose has lost the dusty old books, and is now lemon-scented washing powder. The body has an artificial fruit, like in chew sweets, and the acetone note has calmed somewhat. The finish is sweet and full of lemon.
A dram for a hot summer’s day.
