(Batch #1) Clear, mahogany amber with bright golden flecks.
Shouts tropical fruits with raspberry jam spread over toasted grain, with toffee nougat, salted butter and old tea chest oak.
Starts sweet and quickly turns dry. A splash of water prises open this superb bourbon to reveal breakfast tea tannins, smoky dry oak, warm cinnamon going into paprika spice, dry brazil nut, blackcurrant jam, dried apple and smooth buttery caramel.
Long, nutty, oaky, smoked paprika spiced finish.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
