Classic bourbon cask profile. Perfumy like Eau de cologne. Well balanced. Nuttier with water but it takes the freshness off.

Comment: Classic bourbon cask profile. Perfumy like Eau de cologne. Well balanced. Nuttier with water but it takes the freshness off.
Nose: Rolled oat and honey. Damp earth, orange pulp, melted fruit and nut chocolate bar, some mango.
Palate: Quite sweet. Sits in the centre, though fizzles out in the middle with a drying sensation.
Finish: Chocolate again.
Comment: The oak tries to kick it into life, but a little lacking in energy.
