A great old-style sippin' bourbon and a great base for an Old Fashioned.
86 Proof Kentucky Bourbon
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Rich and deep. Leather armchairs, walnut, dark fruit and tobacco. Oaky as it opens.
Palate: Big and thick. Starts sweetly with a gingery lift. Great balance between old scuffed leather, nutty toffee and spicy rye.
Finish: Long if a little woody.
Comment: A great old-style sippin' bourbon and a great base for an Old Fashioned.
Nose: Very aromatic. Flowery. Nuts. Marzipan.
Palate: Light-bodied but very fruity indeed. Reminiscent of fruitcake with candied orange peels.
Finish: Light, clean. Vanilla pods.
Comment: Easy drinking, but worth more than a moment's thought.
