Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Big humidor and tobacco notes. Sawn oak sweetness with dark fruit and toffee. Intense and layered.
Palate: Heavy burnt sugar, almost a little smokiness. Christmas cake but also a lot of oak.
Finish: Just keeps going.
Comment: Mr Morris has hit the nail on the head with this one.
8.6
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense. Strong wood influence. Sandalwood, cigar box. Floral. Bulb flowers (like Hyacinths). Fruit comes behind. Dried out prune, dawson plum. Long peppercorns. Complex.
Palate: Elegant, rich. Sweet dried fruit then the oak fills in. But beautifully integrated. Toffee, pepper.
Finish: Long, refined. Sweet. Dates
Comment: A brilliant example of an old bourbon. Wood influenced but in the most refined way.
