Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Sweet. Nutmeg,oak,high citrus, almond,plum,yew sap.Great with a drop of water.
Palate: Floral and scented. Rosewater,plum jam and honey.Scented,dare I say feminine (probably not).Light tannin. Very good flow.
Finish: Long and honeyed.
Comment: The gentler side of American whiskey. Well worth a look.
8.0
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense. Demerara sweetness. Maple syrup. Pecan pie. Floral (narcissus).Old polished oak floor. Opens on toffee.
Palate: Not as smooth as expected. The spicy burst invasion gives no mercy to the sweet notes found on the nose.Oak is obviously at the wheel.
Finish: Dry and spicy but soothes down on caramel notes.
Comment: A fierce bourbon. A (too) long maturation has hardened the palate. Too bad as the nose promised roundness.
