Tasting notes
Taster   Bethany Whymark
Nose: Very buttery salted popcorn. Freshly shelled peanuts and pistachios. Coconut oil, cornbread, and ground clove. Mandarin, nectarine, and a little milk chocolate.
Palate: Medium-bodied. The buttery popcorn turns sweet-salty. Vanilla sponge cake, ginger cream and floral honey. Milk chocolate-covered raisins and honeyed cereal. A warm, grassy spice underneath.
Finish: Medium-long on corn kernels, chewy toffees and that fresh, herbal spice.
Comment: A well-balanced bourbon that leans slightly savoury.
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Modelling clay, oil paints, pine sap, lily of the valley, menthol, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, and star anise. A buttery biscuit base with cornbread and a savoury note like hickory smoked barbeque beef.
Palate: Medium-light. Well-integrated sweetcorn, sour cherry, underripe bramble, black coffee, chewy toffee, and allspice. A touch of green bell pepper and white pepper spice. Black tea and subtle violet.
Finish: Medium. Treacle biscuit, some tannin drying, before a cooling menthol note takes over.
Comment: Would stand up well in cocktails, but definitely a sipping whiskey.
