Nose: This is fruity and floral. A big bucket of pears and green apples with honey, butterscotch and a speck of dust. Quite vibrant and youthful.
Mouth: Surprisingly dusty with the malt coming forward with the fruits switching over to ripe red apples and apple juice. The oak is there, but not overpowering. Very mild and welcoming.
Finish: Still dusty and the ripe fruits soon get overtaken by the oak notes. Hazelnuts, peaches and a feint coffee note complement the oak finish.
This whisky is made at the Knockdhu distillery. It’s matured in 2nd fill american ex-bourbon barrels and 2nd fill spanish ex-sherry butts. Generally, it’s made by the ratio of 8 barrels to 2 sherry butts.
