Lovely golden colour from being finished in red wine casks makes me want to crack this bottle open!
The nose is woody but not old wood, it’s a bit like a fresh pallet if that makes sense. There’s also lots of vanilla and caramel and it reminds me of McCowans toffee Dainties (Scottish colloquialism!) I get a wee bit of spice as well
The finish is very smooth but lacking in the real conviction you’d get from an aged dram but not thin like a young spirit either. It’s woody and nutty on the way down and not unpleasant at all
