Daftmill – bourbon barrel matured (sample)

Nose: Lovely stuff. This is right up my alley. As you might know from reading these tastingnotes, I’m a big fan of fruity, fragrant whiskies like Imperial, and this has that lovely crispness to it. It’s not very accessible, which also earns it points. Very zesty and fruity. It’s a complete fruitbasket: apple, banana, orange, apricot, peach, pear. Very fresh. It has resemblance to Imperial, but it’s less floral. And then, all of a sudden, there’s a completely unexpected tarry note. Roofing felt. A nice surprise.
Mouth: different than expected. Quite bitter and not bourbon-like at all.
Finish: medium long and very nice.

Rating: 80-100 out of 10
