Evan William's 9yo single barrel #727 43.3%, 23/9/1998-13/8/2008

Tasted: 20/03/2009
Nose: Orange water, vague feints, slight vegetal quality, tannins.
Palate: Juicy oranges, some tannins, very light on the body.
Finish: Not much happening here. Some drying oak.
Comment: This one was rather a let down. The nose was interesting if not that pleasing, but it just seemed to die after that.

Woodford Reserve Kentucky Derby 133, 45.2%

Tasted: 20/03/2009
Nose: Perfumed, floral, oranges.
Palate: Orange rush with the flavours zooming to the corners of the palate. Sugars, honey and spice. Really very nice indeed.
Finish: Sweet, and exciting finish that endures for ages.
Comment: Really top quality stuff.
