Quick fire notes here...
This is the expression using virgin QA american white oak. THe call them 1st fill casks but they are in fact virgin 1st fill.
Big brand, big name, big flavours! The nose is sweet honey, vanilla apples and not surprisingly strong alcohol. Palate of sweet vanilla, citrus, tropical fruits and water brings on a stronger taste of banana. The finish has oak spice but is fairly short considering how powerful it is on the palate.
It is very drinkable, and water smoothes it out nicely.
I like this better than the sherry cask version I tried 18 months back.
