Other reviews... From the nose to the finale, the oak pokes around with a little too much meaness of spirit. But it is the wonderful clarity to the barley - including a delicious citrusy freshness which keeps the malt on course. 46% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.

...This was aged in a combination of bourbon and double-fired American oak barrels. Pears on the initially light nose, then malty, with soft spices, figs, and diluted orange juice. Quite full on the palate, showing more pears, vanilla, caramel, honey, and barley sugar. The finish is peppery, with lemon, dark chocolate, and black tea.
