Lets have a wee dram.
Nose…Sweet wood, vanilla spices, a slight hint of dried fruits, not in the slightest harsh.
Taste…A big Bourbon, almost chewable, fruit full, spicy oak, only a gesture of water is need in this very robust and complex dram.
Finish…Long and drying with a slight hint of coffee.
Nose…Sugary sweet way too intense to get a true nose, can only think it is the alcohol volume.
Taste…Toffee, liquorices, with pepper spice and coffee.
Finish…Long but not harsh, very soft and smooth.
Overall score…3 Corks
This can only be described as a very big Bourbon and we both loved it, this is a dram that is getting close to what the Whisky Boys expect from their bottles of Whiskies.
Like previous Bourbon tastings this one is available from online sellers and maybe at your specialist shop.
Beginning to enjoy this months special Bourbons, here’s hoping the next one will be as good as this one.
To the Master of Malt, thanks for this months sponsorship.
