All the power you expect from this distillery. Late at night.
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Heavy and powerful. Rum-like: black fruits, molasses sugar. Caramelised orange, leather and dark chocolate (mint?). Black honey. Woody notes.
Palate: Massively powerful, sits on the tongue like a grizzly bear. Chestnut honey but with a teasing savoury edge and a lift from the rye.
Finish: A little woody, then sweet spices.
Comment: All the power you expect from this distillery. Late at night.
Nose: Red summer fruits. Cherry pits. Almonds.
Palate: Big, firm, smooth. Much drier than a typical Turkey, or any other bourbon. Flowery. Lavender.
Finish: An explosion of dry, cedary flavours.
Comment: I like this very much, for its complexity and originality. As a bourbon? The useful phrase 'something else' comes to mind.
