    Bomberger's Declaration 2020 Release, KSBW, 54%.

    The colour has gone beyond amber into a reddy brown.

    Aroma is spiky, the alcohol prickliness merges with mint and caramel. Starts turning to cake dough and rye bread. There must be rye in the mashbill. Later the dark caramel comes through. Never gets that rich.

    Taste is good and punchy, the alcohol is there but carries a big load of flavour on its back. Again dark caramel and plain chocolate covered peanuts are the big up front vibes. Touch of mint and salt and a squeeze of citrus on the finish. Intense and dense in the palate.

    Not my favourite from Michter’s but good nonetheless. However, the £100+ asking price is beyond ambitious and a good deal higher than I’d pay for this experience. 3.475/82.9

    My instinct is that adding some water would open this up, but my experience with Michter’s is that water tends to dampen the flavours. I’m loth to add water but do so in the end.

    With water and a wait the aroma is caramel and apple, broader and more aromatic than without water, but maybe less complex.

    Taste is woodier, still has some nice caramel peanut vibes, not ‘sweet’ but balances the sweet with the dry, ethanol vibes. This whiskey is more balanced at the lower abv in my view. It doesn’t have the best complexity or expressiveness with or without water, but is on the whole a better drinking experience with a touch of water (unusually for Michter’s). 3.5/83.5
