Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Marmalade on toast: beautiful, sweet fruit, dash of soft rye and edge of saltiness.
Palate: Spicy, busy start: early arrival of cocoa but a playfully biting, taste-bud nipping character stars.
Finish: Loads of cocoa balances out vanilla. A dry, slightly oily but magnificently long finish.
Comment: By far the best aroma from the JBB small batch selection, and taste and finish: a classic top of the range bourbon.
9.0
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Hint of char. Spicy rye.
Palate: Surprisingly light start. Marshmallow maltiness. Develops smooth, satisfying, nutty, flavours. Hazelnuts.
Finish: Surge of fruity, apple-like flavours. Some tannin.
Comment: Easily drinkable, appetising.
