Second fill ex-bourbon hogshead, 21 years old, 50.7% abv, 29th October 1991, 229 bottles
A very restrained nose gives little away - hints of raspberry jam, but little else. The body thin and smooth, with lightly toasted white bread, butter and cinnamon. The finish is sweet and long, mostly vanilla.
After water, the nose has digestive biscuit. The body becomes tobacco and caramel - very smooth, somewhat intense. The finish is a little musty - old books and caramel.
A dram to drink with an ice-cream.
