Review and Tasting

Sampled on 19/01/2016

Appearance

(sample 2015 release) Clear, copper bronze with deep reds.

Aroma

Oil-paint with custard powder, a touch of lime-marmalade, dry cider, warm cinnamon, red toffee-apple and burnt soft plastic. More apple, lightly smoky and toasty oak with water.

Taste

Dry, oak chip barbeque and buttery with cedar wood and spice - black pepper and cinnamon. More appley with water.

Aftertaste

Relatively short with cinnamon, black pepper, dry oak and caramelised cooked apple skin.

Overall

Pleasing apple fruity notes balance dry spicy oak in this cask-strength well aged bourbon.
