Nose
Upfront and rich. Classic aromatic bourbon notes of cinnamon balls. Water brings up visions of sucking cherry sweets while driving down a dusty highway.
Palate
Perfumed start,all roses and talcum powder. Quite dry but there's sufficient central sweetness to carry.
Finish
Pacharan.
Comment
The perfumed aspect might not appeal to all,but the balance on this is great. Recommended.

Nose
Oakyand floral. Polished floor. Turkish delight.Chestnut purée. Sandalwood. Praline chocolate in the back. Quite complex. A rye sourness combined with sweet pastry notes.
Palate
Sweet but quite bony as well. A rich exotic character. Guava,lime,and a perfumy flavour (vétiver?)
Finish
Long,rich,.oaky, peppery.
Comment
A complex and rich bourbon. Not too sweet, characterful with an exotic profile. Very interesting.
