Nose
Very malty for a bourbon.
Palate
Malty, then buttery. Lots of flavour development. Vanilla. Liquorice.
Finish
Nice balance of oaky dryness. This level of woodiness is acceptable in a bourbon.
Comment
Fifteen years is quite old for a bourbon, but this is complex, rounded and a good example of Heaven Hill's style. Keeps the sweet notes dominant.

Martine Nouet

Nose
Rich and heady. Plum jam, vanilla. Hint of mushroom and damp cellar. Peppery.
Palate
Both sweet and tangy. Spices and dark chocolate (chocolate-coated brandy cherries). Too aggressive undiluted. Cedar resin, balsamic notes.
Finish
Large, robust and lingering.
Comment
A tough guy exposing his complexity a bit too conspicuously. After dinner, with a cigar.
