Overeem, Cask OHD-005, 43% ABV

Typical cost of this bottle;

 
 

Glass: Classic Malt

Colour: Glowing golden

Nose: Intially expounds with aromatic fruitiness before expanding to include leafy hay or straw with hints of vanilla. It's now really quite farmy in character but in a very nice way. Yes, hay, straw, perhaps even farmyard barn and lots of fruitiness.

Palate: This
really concentrates on the fruitiness with lots of peachiness and warming redcurrant alongside vanilla.

Finish: Long, gentle and mild.

Overall Impression:
This is a very fruity, gentle and mild whisky. A summer delight.
