Nose
Bright, sweet Cherry Coke. Menthol. Spearmint gum. Fades into maple syrup, but cherry sweetness returns. Rose perfume and sandalwood incense. Green tea.
Palate
Warming, silky, and not as sweet. Rounded with golden syrup, vanilla, huge warmth from ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. Chinese Five Spice.
Finish
Short and creamy, lled with strawberry jam, mint, and just a hint of stem ginger in syrup.
Comment
Simple, but really pleasant stuff indeed. A good spirit underneath it all.

Nose
Really big, punchy Bourbon notes; lots of sweet corn and butter, aromatic wood, lavender drawer liners and maraschino cherry notes.
Palate
Great wood tannins and vanilla notes. Spice comes through, with ginger, cumin a touch of aniseed and a little menthol too.
Finish
Warming and short, dried with those cherry notes and plenty of vanilla again.
Comment
A very easy drinking, bang on the nail Bourbon. Solid stuff and well recommended.
