Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense. Woody. Cedar wood. Sandalwood. Vetiver root. Like a men's eau de toilette. Opens on dried fruit and Turkish delight. Some sweetness but well balanced by the wood notes.
Palate: Smooth and satin-like. Sweet liquorice, prunes and Turkish delight. Oak isperfectly integrated.
Finish: Round, soft and clean, ending with a pleasant astringency.
Comment: A superb Kentucky delight ! When old bourbons are oak controlled, theyreach perfection.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Highly aromatic with lots of clove, dusty spices and fennel seeds with the fruits behind. In time there is tobacco and some eucalyptus.
Palate: Very gentle start, given the effusive nose then that dusty spiciness comes through, cinnamon especially. Builds heat, energy, and spices, as it moves to the finish.
Finish: Yes -spices again!
Comment: As you'd expect from this ongoing series this is perfectly balanced, (one ofthe quieter expressions?) but lovely.
