Nose
Immediate and expressive. All the scented,exotic lift of Peychaud bitters, dandelion and burdock,Maraschino juice,and rock candy. In time there's a mix of redwood and yew sap and assertive rye.
Palate
Light and clean then candy floss, spearmint,and a blast of spiciness to the finish. Thinned just a little with water where the oak structure comes through.
Finish
Clean and crisp. Cherry tobacco.
Comment
Clean very precise and well crafted.

Nose
Cedar,sour apple and toffee. A heady floral note reminiscent of lily.
Palate
Thick velvet. Almost cloying but in a pleasant way. Smooth. Sweet pudding-like flavours. Toffee,soft spices. Oak is well integrated.
Finish
Long,spicy with a touch of liquorice and dark chocolate.
Comment
An old bourbon with a good proportion of rye in the mashbill? The floral nose is enticing.
