Rich and deep but the alcohol is not mastered. Too much of a burning dram for me.
William Larue Weller
Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Intense. Burnt caramel. Maple syrup. Sour plum jam. Prunes. A waxy touch. Cedar wood.
Palate: Crisp. Burning. Spices tease the tongue. The alcohol is sharp.
Finish: Quite long, spicy. A nutty aftertaste.
Comment: Rich and deep but the alcohol is not mastered. Too much of a burning dram for me.
Nose: A heavy tobacco, humidor note. Burnt sugar, orange marmalade, treacle and\ra little Parkin cake.
Palate: Full on and complex. Vanilla, cinnamon and orange marmalade soak through the alcohol.
Finish: Long, it lingers.
Comment: A full on bourbon. A rollercoaster ride worth taking.
