Nose
Thick and rich with jammy woodland fruits. Redwood forest, fragrant and quite perfumed: Turkish Delight, black cherry, candied peel. Robust but elegant.
Palate
Rounded, complex. Cinnamon, rose, camphor it's like fireworks going off in the mouth, but underneath is a slow candied river of sweetness.
Finish
Black fruits. Peels and orange bitters.
Comment
Rich and sweet with massive energy. A trio of great bourbons.

Nose
Prickly. The alcohol bites. Intensely fruity and spicy. Dried cranberries, cooked rhubarb. Raisins. Polished floor. Turkish delight. Quite complex.
Palate
Crisp and dry. The high alcohol strength produces its effect. But it is balanced by a fruity sweetness.
Finish
Warm, dry and spicy.
Comment
The high strength can be a barrier. And you lose the balance by diluting it. So, only for those who like it hot !
