Nose
Youthful, herbal and marc-like with dark rye flakes. Coffee and treacle add a touch of balancing sweetness and with time a hint of violet and subtle vanilla oak appears.
Palate
Smoky with herbal marc, but more noticeable corn. Edgy rye intensifies the herbal marc notes but some light corn oil and wheat flake notes balance.
Finish
Good, spicy finish with an almost chilli pepper hotness and a fair amount of drying wood tannins.
Comment
A lovely rye-heavy Bourbon with the right amount of alcohol to intensify the spices.

Nose
Dusty old oak, a walk through a forest after the first rains in Autumn. Hazelnuts, almonds, and pecan pie. Coffee grinds. Cherry Lockets (cough sweets).
Palate
The cherry cough sweets and a slight medicinal note gives this a true feel of pre-prohibition, doctor-prescribed liquor. A good balance of bitter and sweet notes.
Finish
The bitter, liquorice notes first, then the sweet, coffee notes second.
Comment
An interesting and complex Bourbon, which needs to be sipped and savoured.
