The nose feels closed at times, but the vanilla is fairly prevalent. Custardy stuff at first, quickly followed by peaches and apricot marmelade.
There’s a thin veneer of creamy porridge. The palate has a creamy arrival with some fresh citrus notes, quickly followed by red fruits, vanilla pods and caramel. Quite a bit of spices like pepper and ginger, but also charred oak. Decent whisky but not very outspoken.
