Matured in meticulously selected American oak ex-bourbon casks, this tantalising expression unveils an intricate labyrinth of flavours, made possible by Overeem’s bespoke heavy toast and char cask treatment during the coopering process. The dram first greets you with a tropical bouquet of luscious coconut and zesty pineapple, setting the stage for the complexity to come.
Soon, the warm sweetness of burnt vanilla takes centre stage, its alluring smokiness intermingling with bright, zingy citrus notes. But the journey doesn't end there; as the liquid dances on your palate, it slowly unfolds to reveal the rich comfort of caramelised bananas, sweet marshmallows, and the distinct, satisfying crunch of toasted oak.
This whisky is a delightful surprise at every turn, each sip inviting you deeper into its complex, delicately balanced world of flavours. The cask's influences are intricately woven into the spirit, creating a whisky that's a testament to the transformative power of expert ageing and the subtleties of nuanced flavour development.
