Martine Nouet

Intense.A big whiff of rye.Sour fruit. Cranberry jelly. Burnt plums. Touch of bitter orange marmalade. In time,a floral note. Freesia. Peony. Quite expressive and complex.
Smooth at start then crisp and tightened. The same profile as on the nose. Overcooked plum jam. Spices. Ginger,cinnamon. Rich and well balanced.
Long, oaky,spicy.
A bourbon close to a rye whiskey,well structured and quite complex.

Rob Allanson

Massive and complex. Burnt sugar, dark fruits,bitter plum and tangerine skins,sour cherry sweets.
Follows the nose,burnt sugar and sour cherries. Then come more spiced notes with a baked apple pie note dominating.
Big, oaked and exhilarating.
A bold,well balanced whiskey.
