During the second tasting, the nose was particulary marked by spices, pepper and some woody hints on a sweeter background, vanilla or malt.
In the palate, the alcohol dominates quickly, and the taste is rather poor compared to the nose, although there is a kind of complexity here too. Spices and wood disappear soon, making room for something like a fruit alcohol with a less pleasant acid character.
The finish recalls some woody notes, but remains dominated by the alcohol.

The nose is marked by both wood and vanilla. A great sweetness as well, where there is nothing to suggest the high percentage of alcohol of this spirit.
In the palate, a persistent and sweet taste of wood, without great complexity on a background of pear alcohol... No aggressiveness at all neither.
The finish is relatively short, and marked by the wood, and later on a kind of sugared after taste appears.
This bottling is interesting because it is the only Scotch single malt I know to be matured in a first fill American oak cask (new cask)
