Nose
Rich and warming. Oak, nougat, melted chocolate before sour cherry, rye flour, pot pourri faded roses and light tobacco. Sweet but tart at the same time.
Palate
The sweetness of age and oak is quickly eliminated by nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon and pepper.
Finish
Spice.
Comment
A more rye-accented single barrel but one which maintains this series' high standard of excellence.

Martine Nouet

Nose
Floral. Fading rose. Maple syrup. Old furniture. A distant note of dark chocolate.
Palate
Smooth, velvety. A beautiful balance between sweet and bitter. Chocolate and raisins. Fulfilling. Getting oakier.
Finish
Rich oak. Creamy. Lingering.
Comment
A beautiful bourbon, fully matured and showing an elegant balance.
