Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Very malty for a bourbon.
Palate: Malty, then buttery. Lots of flavour development. Vanilla. Liquorice.
Finish: Nice balance of oaky dryness. This level of woodiness is acceptable in a bourbon.
Comment: Fifteen years is quite old for a bourbon, but this is complex, rounded and a good example of Heaven Hill's style. Keeps the sweet notes dominant.
8.0
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Rich and heady. Plum jam, vanilla. Hint of mushroom and damp cellar. Peppery.
Palate: Both sweet and tangy. Spices and dark chocolate (chocolate-coated brandy cherries). Too aggressive undiluted. Cedar resin, balsamic notes.
Finish: Large, robust and lingering.
Comment: A tough guy exposing his complexity a bit too conspicuously. After dinner, with a cigar.
