    Great bourbon with a nose complexity that many single malts do not offer. The alcohol is top integrated. It gets milder with a few drops of water.

      The color in the glass is an incredible orange gold.
      And the color is also in the nose program, as if you had mixed the alcohol with an orange juice concentrate. Mega, what's in there. Wow. The 51.5% sting me in the beginning while slightly in the nose, but after a few minutes rest, volatilizes the first pungency of the alcohol.
      Vanilla also seems to be parked behind the orange. Other oak notes I can not find any.
      After adding a little water, the sharpness in the nose sounds noticeable. Behind the orange, I think I recognize something floral.

      In the mouth he starts his first spicy, with a certain sweetness, horny spices come after. After addition of water also reduces first sharpness and is enhanced by more spices and orange. Salivation is stimulated.

      In the end, then comes a little oak, which lasts a long time by the alcohol. When the bourbon is gone, an orange flavor will hang forever.

    This single barrel whiskey shows that even bourbons can be great. The Nosing is a dream and the complex and multi-layered taste is a pleasure. Very nice, recommended.
