Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Really big, punchy Bourbon notes; lots of sweet corn and butter, aromatic wood, lavender drawer liners and maraschino cherry notes.
Palate: Great wood tannins and vanilla notes. Spice comes through, with ginger, cumin a touch of aniseed and a little menthol too.
Finish: Warming and short, dried with those cherry notes and plenty of vanilla again.
Comment: A very easy drinking, bang on the nail Bourbon. Solid stuff and well recommended.
Taster   Mark Newton
Nose: Bright, sweet Cherry Coke. Menthol. Spearmint gum. Fades into maple syrup, but cherry sweetness returns. Rose perfume and sandalwood incense. Green tea.
Palate: Warming, silky, and not as sweet.Rounded with golden syrup, vanilla, huge warmth from ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. Chinese Five Spice.
Finish: Short and creamy, filled with strawberry jam, mint, and just a hint of stem ginger in syrup.
Comment: Simple, but really pleasant stuff indeed. A good spirit underneath it all.
