Tasting Notes

Nose

Bourbon-like. Intensely spicy, bitter cherry, sap caramelised/waxy notes. This is all about oak. With water, rock candy and sticky Murray Mints.

Palate

Very sweet and direct. A sweet distillate with masses of oak around it. Tightens on the finish. Zesty and tingling then melting chocolate.

Finish

Dry and slightly acidic.

Comment

This isn't a bourbon? Shows how much oak has had its say. Throw some ice in and sip.
