This is a single cask of Westland spirit that is aged in Garryana oak.
Sweet vanilla, baking spices, pungent fruit, grassy, some wet cardboard, Splenda.
Sweet confectioner sugar, think to medium mouth feel. West cardboard, grassy mint, floral and some heat.
Long, growing sour, bitter and minty. Really flora, perfume-y, grass. That artificial sugar note is here in spades.
Everything about this tastes strange, artificial and accentuates some of my biggest issues with Makers Mark 46 - my previously most Splenda-y bottle ever. It's amplified, and I can't, for the life of me, figure out why Westland is still using Garryana for anything but quick finishes. Yikes.
