Nose
Big-boned and gentle with decent dusty rye alongside toffee apple, herbs and and crisp new warehouse oakiness. Becomes woody with water.
Palate
Cinnamon/cassia and the sweet dustiness comes through notes of damask rose and grippy wood.
Finish
Firm and oaky.
Comment
A powerful distillate which is best neat.

Martine Nouet

74
Nose
Perfumy. Parma violet. Dried apricot. Quite a solid oaky frame. Polished furniture. Touch of sandalwood. Vetiver. Rhubarb jam.
Palate
Crisp and dry. Oak is overwhelming with a definite astringency which tends to mask the fruit flavours. Spices take the lead.
Finish
Spicy and bitter.
Comment
An old bourbon which has taken too much wood. Sad as there is elegancy and complexity on the nose.
