A bourbon close to a rye whiskey, well structured and quite complex.

Comment: A bourbon close to a rye whiskey, well structured and quite complex.
Nose: Massive and complex. Burnt sugar, dark fruits, bitter plum and tangerine skins, sour cherry sweets.
Palate: Follows the nose, burnt sugar and sour cherries. Then come more spiced notes with a baked apple pie note dominating.
Finish: Big, oaked and exhilarating.
Comment: A bold, well balanced whiskey.
