After 7 1/2 years in a Bourbon barrel it is as complex as others after 10-12 years.
You have to give it some time in the glass before you drink it ... then it delivers a wonderful bourbon sweetness and the properties of the American oak come across very nicely with its vanilla notes. The smell of lemon is also very noticeable before adding a little water. Adding water makes it even rounder and opens up its variety of flavors even more to the nose. The alcohol is wonderfully integrated despite the almost 58%.
All in all a great whisky that represents the Bourbon barrel storage very well!
