Wow, amazing, exotic fruits from a different planet, had the Brecon Beacons National Park got a tropical climate for maturation – all these exclamations from the panel captured the aroma coming from this glass very well indeed. Silky, smooth, and sweet on the palate like a juicy mango filled bubble gum – wacky but it works. Water caused an explosion of those tropical fruity flavours as we now chewed skittles, those colourful crispy shell yet chewy in the middle – ‘we tasted the rainbow of fruit flavours.’ Following eight years in an ex-bourbon barrel, we transferred this whisky into a 2nd fill barrel with a #4 char, 24 months air seasoned oak and toasted heads.
