BOW (88)

OTHER (84)

words of whisky:

Nose: Somewhat grassy but mainly sweet stone fruits (peach and plums) and vibrant orange zest. Finally some rum raisins and figs, with just a touch of sandal wood. Pretty attractive.
Taste: Quite a bit of musty oak and pleasant wood spices—somewhat drying too. The mouthfeel is oily and rich with some nutmeg, leather, tobacco leaves and dates, as well just a touch of burnt toast, black tea and fennel. Even some coffee and mocha.
Finish: Some faint strawberries and black berries. Drying and medium to long.

Score: 84

Not unpleasant and in a way actually quite likeable, but you’d have to enjoy oak-y single malts. It’s not the virgin oak type of sawdust-y influence, but rather dustier and drier. Not usually something I encounter in whiskies as relatively young as this one.

Personally, I like this more than the rating suggests, but because of the overly oaky side, it wouldn’t feel right scoring it much higher. Still available in a number of places.
