Brilliantly balanced throughout with just the correct amount of sweetness.
Hancock's President's Reserve
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Massive corn mingles with intense oak and a spicy buzz of rye; lashings of sweet toffee.
Palate: Fat and full with a quick explosion of lively rye and demarara sugar followed by sweet corn.
Finish: Drier towards the finale with a long oaky follow through.
Comment: Brilliantly balanced throughout with just the correct amount of sweetness.
Nose: Fresh. Lemon. Vanilla. Hint tobacco.
Palate: Light. Lemons. Roses. Sweetish.
Finish: Lemon curd.
Comment: Liked that spicy-lemon rye character, but lacking in complexity and roundness.
