    nose
    Very sweet, vanilla, typical bourbon barrel-painted. Young, you notice a little alcohol but not very much. Well integrated, malty, sugary, sweet pastries. Light pepper grains and then ripe fruits, some citrus. Delicious.

    taste
    Both extremely sweet and strong and hot, peppery. The alcohol hits you, but doesn't bother you. The vanilla sugar is incredibly strong and dominant. Not very complex, it stays with peppery vanilla sugar with pastries and fruit salad.

    Exit
    Medium length, rather fiery and peppery. It remains malt, slightly tart oak and vanilla.

    Conclusion
    Delicious young bourbon paints with a lot of puff. Strong, schizophrenic, but tasty overall.
    N-88, T-86, F-84 for a good 86 points

    SMWS Tasting Notes

    The nose had banana toffee, millionaire shortbread and ice-cream parlour sweetness; white pepper and humbug heat, tarragon, thyme and straw flip-flops by a holiday hotel swimming pool. On the palate, toffee, chocolate-coated raisins, milk chews and curiosity cola led on to tongue-tingling spice (clove, liquorice, chocolate ginger biscuits, sugar-coated fennel seeds). The reduced nose combined pain au chocolat and chocolate éclairs with milk thistle, daffodils, trampled ferns, wintergreen and bay leaf. The palate became easy and lip-smacking - jellied white fruits, under ripe banana, chocolate limes and brandy snaps, gently warming aniseed balls, moist gingerbread, Victory V's and a menthol and eucalyptus finish.
