Review and Tasting
Sampled on 03/02/2016
(sample 2015 release) Clear, deep coppery golden amber with tints of bronze and red.
Cedar wood, wood sap and oil paint with petrol, eucalyptus, current bun and starchy corn on the cob.
Huge and bone dry but rounded with notes of corn, toffee apple, orange marmalade, vanilla, cider wood, tobacco leaf, spice and chocolate orange.
Spice bursts onto the long lasting toffee apple finish.
Dilute this huge bourbon and experience cedar wood, cinnamon orange marmalade, vanilla and toffee apple.
