Even the colour is pale. This is a very gentle introduction to bourbon, but with all the elements.
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Gentle, but quite evocative. Dessert apples. Raisin cookies. Sweet but appetising.
Palate: Light in body and flavour, but with some delicacy and complexity. Vanilla. Honey. Spicy.
Finish: Fruity flavours reminiscent of orange flower water. Drying somewhat with a hint of char.
Comment: Even the colour is pale. This is a very gentle introduction to bourbon, but with all the elements.
Nose: High-toned, crisp and citric: lemon, lime and tangerine peel with a hint of mintiness.
Palate: Zesty. Lemon, honey and spice. Nice rye balance towards the finish.
Finish: Touch of light woodiness getting oily as rye shows its hand.
Comment: Very well-balanced. The uptown sophisticate, a discreetly charming member of the bourgeoisie.
