Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Fruit, fruit and just a little more fruit, my word; it’s a rich, well-stocked soft fruit section of a greengrocer. A good mix of orchard and dark fruits, then a little spice creeps in.
Palate: Deep, dark Cassis syrup, alcoholic red berry squash. Those spices start to take hold, oak, vanilla and a rye pep come through.
Finish: Sweet and fruity and just takes forever.
Comment: Not sure if I said it was fruity. Not a one-trick pony though, great oak and wood spice integration too.
Taster   Becky Paskin
Nose: A shy start developing into savoury aromas of cornbread and rye grass with a sweet nuttiness in roasted chestnuts and toffee-coated popcorn.
Palate: More of that crunchy popcorn with seeded rye bread and hot, buttered corn on the cob. That chestnut quality continues too, joined now by some roasted hazelnuts and caramel milk chocolate.
Finish: A touch of cinnamon spice, caramel and nuts.
Comment: A Bourbon that ticks all the boxes. It takes time to open in the glass but this’ll be a crowd-pleaser.
