Nose: very briny, salty and peaty. A bit of smoke too. It's like I'm on the beach. Very maritime. I like it a lot!
Palate: the same as in the nose, but the balance is just right! I absolutely love this dram.
Finish: long, peppery yet smooth, salt an peat emerge again. This was worth every Euro!

Wild Turkey 8
with tax label, 750 bottle and "80" embossed in the glass
Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Nose: loads of caramel, lots of straw, maple wood shavings, can you ferment vanilla?
Palate: huge rough straw with some cracked wheat and barley, drizzle of caramel, kind of spicey
Finish: big, bold and spiced caramel

Nose: Heavy notes of baked goods such as warm pie crust and scones, sherry, bar wood like you'd expect to smells in 'Cheers', vanilla, varnish, sandlewood.
Palate: Massive spice attack, sandlewood, playdough, vanilla, bubblegum, strawberry, and something like roast chicken.
Finish: Sweet, nutty, fruity and looooooooooooooong!
A fantastic and very rare(well even more rare), Karuizawa.
