Comment
A deeply classy bourbon. Recommended

Nose
Intense. A beautiful display of balsamic scents. Cedar.Pine essence. Freshly polished oak floor. Liquorice root. Pot pourri. Cinnamon tea. Atmospheric
Palate
Soft,silky. Oak prevails but not in an assertive way. Well balanced although it seems to have passed its peak. A certain weakness at mid palate
Finish
Soft,slightly tired
Comment
A still beautiful dram but it seems to have lost some muscles with the time. The nose remains intriguing and rich
