Comment: Simple, but really pleasant stuff indeed. A good spirit underneath it all.
Nose: Really big, punchy Bourbon notes; lots of sweet corn and butter, aromatic wood, lavender drawer liners and maraschino cherry notes.
Palate: Great wood tannins and vanilla notes. Spice comes through, with ginger, cumin a touch of aniseed and a little menthol too.
Finish: Warming and short, dried with those cherry notes and plenty of vanilla again.
Comment: A very easy drinking, bang on the nail Bourbon. Solid stuff and well recommended.
