Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Prickly. Sour fruit. Cider apple. Nail varnish,fresh paint. A hint of cedar wood. Then creamier toffee notes. Polished floor.
Palate: Smooth and velvety. Chocolate toffee and sour apples coated in vanilla custard.
Finish: Medium long, dry with a slightly bitter oak note.
Comment: A bourbon with a high content of rye? Provided you allow it time to open,youwill enjoy its company.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Well layered with mint,sweet spices, candied fruits. Almost confected. Cocktail cherries,violet,orange and lemon rind. The water increases the scented notes along with rock candy but also a bitter note. Pine sap with water and then strawberry.
Palate: Hugely fragrant,as you expect, in fact, it's so high-toned it's almost over thetop. Light oaky tones,kirsch.
Finish: Oak grip.
Comment: A bit much on its own but a great cocktail spirit.
