The oak is a focal point here with vanilla, wheat flakes and rye-like herbal notes. The grain component adds a little freshness and allows a light apricot and sweet apple note to appear.
Oak, oak, oak and yet more oak! Buttery and creamy with no shortage of Bourbon/rye-like character. The grain fights its way through eventually.
Long and guess what? Oaky! Grainy spice at the very end.
There appears to be a lot of first-fill American oak here and is a lesson on how influencing it can be.
