228 bottles, 2005 KWM, Refill bourbon Cask 302022


Color: Light gold-hay

Nose: Medicinal blast, seaweed coated with sea salt, barnicles galore, woody remnants of an old galleon ship and Australian black licorice.

Taste: The peat unfurls with intensity, "sticky lice" blasts forth with citrus hues.

Finish: Long, the citronella foundation gives way to bulrushes and oak tannin.

***A few drops of water affects the palate by pulling in peppery notes with a complimentary cinnamon emphasis.

Comments: A solid offering from G & M at cask strength.

Score: 88

Kensington Wine Market, a well known independent outlet for wine and whisky in Alberta which also selects particular casks for bottling.

I would never have guessed that one, I was thinking KWM may relate to the type of cask.
