Nose
Clean, medium-rich and sweet. Golden syrup, caramel, preserved lemon and a little waxiness , underpinned by cooked fruit, herbs shading into pine and sanded wood.
Palate
cumin and coriander and black cherry. Sweet and substantial.
Finish
Smoky wood.
Comment
Interesting how a few years ago an 8yo bourbon would have been considered old, yet here you can still pick put ‘youthful' vibrancy.

Nose
Fragrant and rich. Exotic wood. Sandalwood. Fading rose. Orange peel. Nutmeg, hint of cinnamon. Like a dusty pot-pourri. Fruit come in waves. Cooked first, damson plum jam, the dried. Apple peel, raisins.
Palate
Crisp but not dry. A well balanced sweetness releasing luscious fruit flavours and spices.
Finish
Full, concentrated, with a slight astringency. Peppery too.
Comment
A very well-balanced whiskey. The alcohol is perfectly mastered.
