Review and Tasting
Sampled on 01/04/2012
(barrelled 18-Apr-1990, barrel No. 8966)
Spicy nutty nose - almost reminiscent of peanut butter with vanilla oak.
Slightly sweet yet at the same time dry with oaky corn balanced by vanilla and sweet maple. Faint enlivening Worcestershire sauce spice.
Long, oaky maple finish with lingering spice.
