Nose
Had a bit of the Journey expression at the same night as this one. This one was more woody, warm, and sweet. But the both have difficult noses and need a lot of time to open up.

Palate
Young, sweet, fruity… A much like the Journey but with a cover of wood over it really.

Finish
Dry, and not long

Score
6,5 out of 10. This really needs some more time in the cask, but not sure what that will do really. The combination of casks used and the spirit give me not a very positive idea of this. Maybe have to try more of them in a later time. Don’t really know what to think of it at the moment, has to get a second chance from me first …
