Dram Review: Timboon Governor’s Reserve (Bottled on 31 August 2017)

[56.3%・3 Years Old・Distilled in 2014・ Bottled in 2017・ Official Bottling・Limited Release of 95 Bottles]

Nose:

Limestone and chalk, aromas of lime flavoured hand sanitiser as well as bubble gum, quite strange to be honest.

Palate & Finish:

A delivery driven by limes, really zesty actually, some fresh oranges and kiwis in there as well pulling through with a pill like bitterness.

Wee finish of kiwis and honeydew melons, slightly bitter still.

Thoughts:

Credit to Mr Josh Walker for taking a chance of vatting a bourbon cask with a Port cask to create this.

Unfortunately I found this too strange personally, even with the funky and citrus distillery characters in mind, it’s like watching Mr David Boon taking a swing at the first ball only to edge it to second slip..
