Tasting notes
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Soft and mild oak notes of acacia honey, honeysuckle flowers, orange zest, popcorn coated in a sweet buttery sauce, candied peanuts, and drier notes of pencil shavings and oak sawdust.
Palate: Medium bodied with freshly sliced pear and green grape cutting though the richer oak and honey sweet flavours of caramel flapjack.
Finish: Toasted oak, cracked black peppercorn and pinesap in a medium-long finish.
Comment: Easy drinking, with lots of floral, fruit, honey, and mellow oak spices.
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: A delightfully classic bourbon nose, full of freshly scraped vanilla pod, sponge cake, dry notes, brown sugar in a milky coffee, and peppermint creams.
Palate: On the palate, things follow through nicely, with more of the brown sugar, but this time there’s Christmas spices and dark fruit adding more complexity.
Finish: A lingering and drying finish thanks to those oaky spices, rounded out with a hint of vanilla.
Comment: If you want to try a classic bourbon, then this is certainly going to be just the ticket!
