Nose
Green with lime, orange and flour sacks. As it opens there's cookie dough and a little catty edge. Some more weight with water.
Palate
Soft, thick and quite creamy before the buzzy alcohol takes charge. Water shows it to be simple clean and pleasant with decent structure.
Finish
Soft fruits return.
Comment
Decent enough but a little underwhelming.

Nose
Delicate. Flowery (not exactly floral !), fresh, jovial. Aniseed, chervil, freshly cut grass. Spring flowers.
Palate
Silky, caressing. Sweet aniseed notes at start then a fizzy feel on the tongue; The alcohol warms up tastebuds without burning though.
Finish
Warm, gently soothing with vanilla syrup notes.
Comment
A good example of a refill Bourbon cask. A low-key profile but well balanced. The alcohol is a bit biting but I still prefer it neat.
