Delicate oral notes kick off this dram, along with hints of digestive biscuit and a cereal note reminiscent of the malt barns. The bourbon infuence is presented in notes of vanilla custard and custard creams. A fruity, cherry note develops over time.
The vanilla note from the nose develops on the palate into flavours of sweet, creamy victoria sponge. There are hints of honey and syrup, balanced with fresh barley water.
A light and sweet finish, with hints of salted caramel to round off this dram.
