This whisky defines complex, starting its maturation in ex-bourbon casks before being transferred to Spanish port pipes, then back to ex-bourbon casks for a final touch. There’s no burn on the nose despite the high ABV, but there’s a great sweet aroma of red grapes, raisins, plums, brown sugar, and a hint of ginger. The taste is thick, nectar-like and spicy with cinnamon, honey, raisin, and ginger notes. The finish lingers with a good balance of cinnamon, ginger, and honey. Excellent.
