An old faithful of a bourbon. Never lets you down and being from the wheaty school always shows good oak balance. Nose is to die for.
Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Aroma with delightful strands of exotic fruit and honey. Fruit cake. Oak adds to feeling of class.
Palate: Lush, pleasingly deep and malty. A firm nuttiness adds extra oily, chewability to the toffee.
Finish: Drier than of old. Caramel toffee with the oak guarantees a bittersweet edge.
Comment: An old faithful of a bourbon. Never lets you down and being from the wheaty school always shows good oak balance. Nose is to die for.
Nose: Wheaty, nutty. Bananas?
Palate: Buttered toast. Molasses. Maple syrup.
Finish: Clean, dryish, flapjack.
Comment: Beautifully structured. Tightly combined flavours. Every bit as smooth as it claims to be.
