Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Gorgeous honey, diced dates, old leather and rye with a teasing sprinkling of spice. Magnificent.
Palate: Massively intense launch, waxy honeycomb with fabulously controlled Demerara sweetness and an edge of rye.
Finish: Long lightly liquoriced with the honey hanging on, as does the rye and a soft build up of cocoa.
Comment: A big bourbon with the proportions being generous and almost perfectly proportioned.
9.5
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Soft, oaky, fresh earth. Peaches.
Palate: Toffeeish. Fruity. Raisins. Remarkably smooth, but packed with energy and power.
Finish: Creamy, aromatic.
Comment: This is more like a supercharged Wild One. Defiantly robust, but with Devilish charm. I love it.
