Tasting Notes

Nose

Candy floss, dry spices, the smell of the woodshed. In time overripe banana, cherries, coconut and orange appear.

Palate

Very sweet start with ripe fruits, then wood starts to dominate.

Finish

The wood takes over making it a pretty dry experience.

Comment

Unbalanced, the high-impact of new cask sits uncomfortably with the distillery character.
