Tasting Notes

Nose

Heavy oak and vanilla, sweet and quite fat.

Palate

Rich and mouth-coating from the start, with a surprising burst of oaky spice at the centre. The honey sweetness lurks in the background.

Finish

Rye depth and fruitiness but unusually dry and oak-heavy.

Comment

A drier version of the old No. 8 101 brand, with the honey trademark keeping a low profile. Not quite so complex but a sturdy bourbon for all that.
