A rich bourbon,well structured but the strength is too high for me.
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Intense. Distinctive sourness. Crab apple. Polished oak floor. Old library. Hint of varnish. Orange segments. Treacle. Caraway.
Palate: Sweet and spicy. Overcooked plum jam. Oak. The alcohol bite tickles the\rtongue. Water enhances the sourness.
Finish: Long,warm even slightly burning.
Comment: A rich bourbon,well structured but the strength is too high for me.
Nose: Big boned,but Lifted and aromatic. Some rose water and coconut milk. Dusty/powdery flower petals and big eucalypt hit. Plenty of wood sap,burnt orange peel.
Palate: Scented.Plenty of grippy oak suggesting some age,then the dusty/spicy hit of rye. Dark chocolate, some mint,hint of vetiver along with masses of roses.
Finish: Lifted and long.
Comment: Great personality. Seems to have age but has the weight to balance.
