Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Rich,refined.Antique shop,polished oak floor.Granny's wardrobe :cloved orange,rose petals,cinnamon.Wet ground coffee.Cocoa powder.
Palate: Gently flowing.Quite crisp and dry. Perfect balance with the nose. Oaky flavours are more precise but well mastered.
Finish: Long,lingering on spices and orange peel.
Comment: A superb bourbon. As neat and perfectly dressed and combed as Richard Paterson!
Taster   Dominic Roskrow
Nose: Big and full,with vanilla,candy, over-ripe plum and peach,dusty and with lots of tannin.
Palate: A big boy bourbon - full on candy and rich fruits,saddle leather, cherry,cocoa and lots of sharp astringent woody notes.
Finish: Long and woody,with sweet spice fruits.Planning to drink something else? Don't bother.
Comment: Whiskey's answer to the new AC/DC album:old,male, predictable but damn fine,too.
