    The original price of this miniature was Price 6D. I bought it at auction in 2016 for peanuts.

    N: “This has legs like an octopus!”, I say. The Foz replies with “Forget Jerry Hall. Octopussy’s don’t have legs”. Nosing, we have a dessert fruitiness in the form of apples & pears with one heaped dessert spoon of homemade custard accompanied by black pepper, curry leaves and cardboard-y Shreddies.
    T: Arrives as straight bourbon before a welcomed old skool corn wave with a malty-like depth. There are bitter sour notes but still within sweeter corn confines.
    F: Grain sherbet, blueberry muffin and bitter oaky chocolate with one whole black peppercorn at the death.
    C: Excellent Pappy-esque bourbon.

    Old bottle. 35ml for ¥500 @ Sake Museum.

    Appearance: Medium orange-golden. Pale for a bourbon.

    Nose: Cherry, woody oak, cinnamon, cookies.

    Palate: Wow. Lovely depth, vanilla, lots of oak, cherry and cinnamon.

    Finish: Dry and smooth.

    Overall: Very good stuff. Definitely not the flavor of a budget bourbon, which I do think in fact it was. Rich and smooth and full-flavored.

    Same mini of WhiskyLovingPianist... Not bad at all, but is not my "campo da gioco".
