The nose on this is oiled leather and fungus. The palate has the mildest of smoke and tastes extremely young which is strange considering that it’s blended with whiskies that are 13 and 21 years of age. Very sour which lingers into the finish, thin and bland. Not as offensive as the 16 but not far off either. There are cheap blends that are much better than this.

Finished in Amarone barrels, Amarone is a dry Italion red wine. The nose is like a fruit basket that was smothered in chocolate. The palate has some darker chocolates, dried fruits and spice. The finish is more oak and fruit, lovely balance. This expression is quite good and very unique.
