Dram Review: Overeem Port Cask Matured OHD-115

[43.0%・NAS・Bottled in 2017・Official Bottling・Cask No. OHD-115・Single Cask Release of 169 Bottles]

Nose:

Hazy strawberry and raspberry fragrances laying path for a lemony and floral affair.  The spirit is slightly yeasty but in time it unfolds into something quite buttery with a likeable cereal base.

Palate & Finish:

An agreeable front palate of light strawberries being paired with vanilla cream, cloudy apple juice with a hint of lemon marmalade before fizzling out, leaving behind traces of burnt toast and bitter wood chips.

Thoughts:

This is a mild and pleasant drop, nothing too complex but certainly not a bad dram to introduce friends to the easy going Tasmanian brand.  The tail perhaps needs some work but I thought the guys nailed the vibe.
