The 19 year old v. Robert Graham (RG) # 9095;
The 21 year old v. Elixir Distillers (ElD) # 9094
Both are a very special experience, but I prefer the 19 year old.
The following applies to both: "Leave time in the glass plus some water" Two very special bottles!
A nose with an aha effect! It doesn't smell, it smells. The full bourbon range with incredible elegance. Light yet peppery. Dry yet cooling freshness. Great fruit notes with dry grass and always slightly floral. This is a premium class bourbon nose. Respect.
He starts sweet with fruit pickled in honey. Rather slightly sour but full-bodied, it always remains sweet. Wow! The malt and the drying wood form the center of this culinary delight. Full-bodied like a fruit dessert, it conjures up a grin on your face. I love good bourbon bottles! The 19 is bought later. Point!
Medium to long, it stays fruity and fresh. With a rare feeling of cooling, he is slow to let go. Getting dry but still spicy, fruity and sweet! An absolute stroke of luck.
