- Nose: Sherry'ish (yes I know it's a Bourbon cask), sandalwood, rather Japanese, juicy, leather, tobacco, dried cherries and berries, very fruity! and some smoke
- Mouth: Oak, a bit smoke, mild and sweet, a tad of underlying tannins, quite oily
- Finish: Sherry, sandalwood, smoky, nutty, yam stark(?)
Comment: A fantastic nose! Mouth and finish fall a bit short compared to the nose but are excellent nonetheless.
