    Yes, it really is a bourbon that, as a lover of single malt, tastes for once and is pretty good too. Before that, however, I only had two bourbons in the price range of 20-30 €, they were okay, but not really good.
    At best, I would have come across pure bourbon from the nose. The New Riff has only very light glue and an otherwise more typical bourbon nose, but very soft, complex and inviting with vanilla, caramel, forest honey, grain, spice and fresh flowers.
    The taste is really good, with vanilla, caramel, mint chocolate, pear, fresh flowers, rapeseed honey, grain, spice and light wood (which doesn't look young). It has an oily and sedate mouthfeel.
    There is a point deduction in the B grade for the price in Europe. In the USA the good one costs 50 dollars, here 70 €, even if it is 750ml from a single barrel.
    New Riff apparently makes good whiskey, which despite its young age does not look young. You also do without cold filtration, bravo!
