Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Immediate and expressive. All the scented,exotic lift of Peychaud bitters, dandelion and burdock,Maraschino juice,and rock candy. In time there's a mix of redwood and yew sap and assertive rye.
Palate: Light and clean then candy floss, spearmint,and a blast of spiciness to the finish. Thinned just a little with water where the oak structure comes through.
Finish: Clean and crisp. Cherry tobacco.
Comment: Clean very precise and well crafted.
8.1
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Cedar,sour apple and toffee. A heady floral note reminiscent of lily.
Palate: Thick velvet. Almost cloying but in a pleasant way. Smooth. Sweet pudding-like flavours. Toffee,soft spices. Oak is well integrated.
Finish: Long,spicy with a touch of liquorice and dark chocolate.
Comment: An old bourbon with a good proportion of rye in the mashbill? The floral nose is enticing.
