Vanilla, raisin, sweet, fruits, apricots, biscuits, honey, butterscotch
Warm, honey, sweet, coconut, apricots, soft bit exotic fruits, pear, mango, chocolate, vanilla. Ans many tones like the Bourbon Barrel Yamazaki, but a bit more softer and creamy than that one.
Soft, sweet, not a very long finish. Found it going from a bit creamy and full to a bit watery. So it lost something somewhere.
7 out of 10, this one needs to warm up a bit in the glass, then it opens up much more. Found it just a bit better then the 12 YO due to the body and nose profile, more full and more depth in it, but due to the finish I ended up a bit lower then the Bourbon Barrel. So was shifting between different scores but when all added up, it is not a bad dram, far from that, would love a bottle, but it gives me the feeling that I am missing something somewhere? Seems not to be in a complete balance?
