I had the pleasure to taste this new release a few months before its premiere on our market. This is a Five Oak Cask Release, which is matured in a combination of three different types of virgin oak (Irish, European and American) and in addition to ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks. As you may guess, because of the Single Pot Still and the virgin oaks, the whole whiskey is dominated by spices. On the nose - wood-driven spices of cinnamon, complimented by salted caramel a vanilla. Earthy, grassy feeling in addition to peel of green zesty fruits could be felt on the nose as well. On the palate you can now feel more of the bourbon casks and also the sherry - dark chocolate feeling, toffee and oranges, all covered with wood spices while finishing. I've tasted much better single pot stills to be honest, although that is not one of the bad ones!
