This travel retail expression is bottled at 100° UK proof (57.1% ABV), and comes from ex-bourbon casks. The nose is tart with citrus fruits and a soft peatiness, along with hints of brine and vanilla. The taste is chewy and thick with good smokiness and cinnamon spice, honey and vanilla underneath, and just a hint of citrus tartness for balance. The finish is long, soft, smoky, and slightly dry. Water adds a nice briny touch. Excellent!
