FERRE OAKED WHISKY  t_u  t_u  t_u  t_u  t_u

Ferre ( Quadruple ) aged on oak chips and whisky infused from Maenhout, with an ABV of 11.0%. New brew for me.

Pours a deep ruby burgundy with a smallish creamy frothy head. Good lacing.

Boozy aroma of whisky, malts, hops, sugar, grapes, figs and bananas.

It's medium bodied, and nicely carbonated. Smooth, creamy and luxurious in taste and texture, it's rounded, balanced, complex and has good depth of flavour. The first sips at its coldest it's totally whisky dominated, and even warms the stomach but as it warms it mellows and the whisky isn't so prominent. The oak
becomes apparent, along with vanilla, some bourbon, spices, caramel, dates, raisins, demerara sugar, figs, bananas, herbal hops, and background malt. Sweetish, and with a quite dry and bitter finish. Great brew, but as with most barrel aged brews they aren't really an improvement on the base brew!
