Old Log Cabin
No age statement
Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Dusty old oak, a walk through a forest after the first rains in Autumn. Hazelnuts, almonds, and pecan pie. Coffee grinds. Cherry Lockets (cough sweets). \n
Palate: The cherry cough sweets and a slight medicinal note gives this a true feel of pre-prohibition, doctor-prescribed liquor. A good balance of bitter and sweet notes.\n
Finish: The bitter, liquorice notes first, then the sweet, coffee notes second. \n
Comment: An interesting and complex Bourbon, which needs to be sipped and savoured.
Nose: Youthful, herbal and marc-like with dark rye flakes. Coffee and treacle add a touch of balancing sweetness and with time a hint of violet and subtle vanilla oak appears.
Palate: Smoky with herbal marc, but more noticeable corn. Edgy rye intensifies the herbal marc notes but some light corn oil and wheat flake notes balance. \n
Finish: Good, spicy finish with an almost chilli pepper hotness and a fair amount of drying wood tannins. \n
Comment: A lovely rye-heavy Bourbon with the right amount of alcohol to intensify the spices.
