Smooth and very accessible. A good balance to it. Typical bourbon influences. Sweet, sour and a tad earthy. Pleasant so far! I get peach, unripe pear, pineapple juice, rhubarb, tea and tea leafs. Also I get vanilla, licorice, nougat, sawdust and mild white pepper.
On the palate again it gives sweet and sour sensations. It’s friendly, smooth, and again accessible. It’s I get some rechar sensations. Freshly toasted and charred oak quite instantly. Besides that vanilla, some coconut and ginger. Also I get lime juice. It’s quite tasteful.
A medium-long finish. In the finish some more youthfulness shines through but in a good way. It makes this whisky rather fun and playful. It’s being translated in fresh, malty and corn-like flavors. It keeps tingling the palate quite a while.
I will have no problem at all emptying this complimentary bottle.
