Cask no. B090916030A / Bottle no. 127/195 / ABV: 57.1%

Thanks to my brother, he purchased this bottle in a local market's clearance sale, and kindly left it to me. This bottle has been opened for about a month.

Nose: Hot and fruity. Coconuts, mango, honey, lemongrass and citrus.

Palate: Sweet and spicy, a bit harsh. Milk chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, pineapple, honey and lemon candy.

Finish: Coffee bean, white pepper, vanilla and oak.

Balance: Full flavored, obviously young and hot. There's a lot of tropical fruits and spices, the oak is dominating, not bad but too many edges for my liking.

Overall: It's a solid single cask, but a bit expensive for this young whisky and what it delivers, in my opinion Kavalan Solist Sherry Cask is more rounded the enjoyable. If you want a special Taiwanese bourbon cask whisky, TTL(Taiwan Tabacco & Liquor Corperation) Nantou Distillery Bourbon Cask Cask Strength is a delicious treat that worth seeking out, but it's only available in Taiwan now.
