Review and Tasting


Sampled on 05/02/2017

Appearance:

(sample bottle batch: 252, bottle No. 3918) Clear, coppery amber.

Aroma:

Butterscotch, char-grilled sweet-corn, chocolaty mocha coffee, vanilla, ginger biscuit, freshly shaved oak and cinnamon.

Taste:

Mellow and lightly spicy. Nutty vanilla crème anglaise, barbecued corn-on-the-cob, blackened fruitcake, gingerbread, delicate cinnamon spice and butterscotch with hints of espresso and dark bitter chocolate.

Aftertaste:

Long, pleasing finish with lightly spiced char-grilled corn-on-the-cob and oaky butterscotch.

Overall:

A beautifully balanced bourbon with char-grilled sweet-corn, freshly shaved oak, nutty notes and butterscotch. A mellow bourbon with moderate spice.
