Dave Broom

Nose
Light and clean.Lifted and citric (lemon meringue pie) with assertive rye notes,some dried rose petal. Sweet and lightly spiced. Touch of acacia honey and a light earthy note.
Palate
Light and clean with a little menthol. Floral. A little fragile but masses of sweet spice. Discreet poised and precise.
Finish
Touch buttery.
Comment
Light and restrained,but balanced.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Quite complex with plenty of layers giving citrus,that spicy rye hit and almost fresh turned earth.
Palate
Sweet and spicy but very delicate for a bourbon. A hint of mint among the sweetness as well.
Finish
Cloying in a good way.
Comment
A good place to start. Balanced and well constructed.
