Nosing: Vanilla and cereal notes, some green apple. Has that young bourbon cask character to it.

Taste: Vanilla Caramel
Light to medium arrival. Buttery vanilla. Very mid range flavour intensity, stays constant throughout. There's some spiciness over time, but it takes a long time to kick in.

Finish:
Medium length, very woody, dry.

Comment:
Not going to lie, this one's a bit of a disappointment. The nose is fine, if a little underwhelming. On the palate, it really lacks any power, and I absolutely hate the finish. It has a bitter wood sap note which I don't like at all.
