Review and Tasting

Sampled on 14/04/2019


Clear, golden amber.


Pineapple kombucha, cigar leaf, vanilla fudge, ripe peach, banana chews, clean plastic box, cinnamon, clove and white pepper spice. Faint menthol, aniseed and struck match with water.


Dry toasty oak tannins, cigar leaf and not quite ripe pineapple with black pepper, clove and cinnamon spice. Water releases vanilla, peach and chamois leather.


Dry toasty oak, charcoal, vanilla, and light black pepper spice.


Big and chewy, this 100 proof Tennessee whiskey benefits from a splash of water. Pleasingly fruity with dry oak tannins mellowed by vanilla and ripe peach.
