Dram Review: Corowa First Drop

[63.1%・NAS・Bottled in 2018・Official Bottling・Limited Release of 320 Bottles]

Nose:

Hot and spicy with some caramel and Christmas spices, youthful spirit wrapping some marshmallow.

Palate & Finish:

Sweet and big prune juices, your typical Aussie Port cask matures whisky packing ample of spices with some blueberry and blackcurrant coulis to go with the prunes.

A swift finish with some menthol and hint of chocolate..

Thoughts:

The First Drop fares better than the Bosque Verde in my opinion, again I think later batches of these American oak Port barrels should have much more depth.

Thank you Mr. Fitzsimons for the sample.
