Nose
Hot terracotta tiles, mineral salts, perfumed lavender pomander and acacia honey. Time reveals a touch of ashy cigar smoke.
Palate
Passion fruit, more lavender, creamed coconut a touch of milky cornflakes and then it's off into drying Bourbon casks. Nicely balanced betwixt soaring fruit and oak.
Finish
Creamy oak and bergamot.
Comment
A no nonsense, yet elegant Bourbon.

Rob Allanson

82
Nose
Malt loaf and butter, damp coffee grinds, light sherry, boxes of raisins, damp woodland, demerara sugar, nougat and then some spices.
Palate
Very light and powdery, caster sugar and pastry. Honey roast peanut boxes. A manuka honey sweetness to it. A touch of spent match and gentle wood smoke. Oak shavings and pencil cases.
Finish
A liquorice bitterness, and Earl Grey tea edge, tempered with those oak spices.
Comment
A well balanced whiskey.
