Tasting notes
Taster   Becky Paskin
Nose: At first it’s surprisingly grassy and mentholic. As it settles it becomes sweeter, turning to bread and butter pudding, glazed doughnuts and chocolate chip cookie dough with a side of buttered rye toast.
Palate: Soft brown sugar and more cookie dough with a cinnamon spike and vanilla ice cream. Orange marmalade is now smothered on that hot toast.
Finish: Soft, medium length. That cookie dough refuses to go quietly though.
Comment: A crowd-pleaser. A well made, easy-drinking Bourbon.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Seriously fruity – stewed apples with cinnamon and vanilla, and allspice crumble topping. Fresh oak chips, linseed oil, then the sweetness builds with icing sugar, peanut butter and grape jelly.
Palate: Builds from the nose with those apple and pear crumble notes taking the lead, and developing a little cracked black pepper spiciness to them.
Finish: Takes its time with lots of brown sugar sweetness building and then a little grippy oak playing its hand.
Comment: Has a certain zip. Could be fun in an Old Fashioned.
