Nose
A big hit of peppery and spicy rye to begin. Vibrant and tight, with subtle oak and hints of corn. Develops notes of sour cherries, burnished wood, leather and marzipan.
Palate
Dark rye spice, pepper and a touch of corn oil. Quite tannic with the alcohol emphasising the dryness, but late treacle, hickory and coffee notes balance.
Finish
Seriously spicy with hints of sweet rose petal marc, mentholated herbs and lingering oak.
Comment
Now that's how I like my Bourbon, hard and spicy with no fat and flabby corn!

Nose
An initial hint of wood-glue here, which is rather off-putting but thankfully it has gone, as quickly as the good notes of oak, mint, hazelnut and vanilla kick in. Phew!
Palate
A big yes here to the lovely rounded oak notes, toasted almonds and lavender, which is unusual for a big whisky. Blood orange too.
Finish
Lots of drying bitterness on the back of the finish, which I don't mind if mixing this in an Old Fashioned.
Comment
A little dry and bitter for a sipping Bourbon, but perfect in balance, poise and strength to mix.
