    For a small 30,- you can get your hands on a nice bourbon that is very sharp at the first sip if you are used to a single malt, but if you let it stand for a while you get used to it, the delicious taste of vanilla comes to the fore which also sticks well.

    All in all a more than fine bourbon!

    Enjoyable bourbon that you should definitely try straight.

    Color: dark amber with copper reflections.
    Smell: The tip tips of caramel, plum jam, cloves and star anise nails.
    Mouth: Full-bodied and enveloping, it expresses a structured slightly spicy flavor and the presence of nutmeg and maple syrup. Long and decided by persistence and spicy caramelized.

    A solid bourbon. Rich and sweet on the nose. The spice grows and the sweetness diminishes with time in the glass. The palate is sweet baking spices and rich grains with a touch of fruits.
    • Nose
      Sweet vanilla and honeyed rye (dill), ripe and dried banana, oak and a touch of barrel char, rich fruits (sweet cherries, dried sugared pineapple, and baked apple) and mixed baking spices, and a touch of roasted grains and nuts coated in brown sugar that ride the alcohol vapor finish.
    • Taste
      Honeyed muesli and baking spices in brown sugar, rye and cinnamon coated baked apples with orange peel, banana custard with orange zest, and sweet - vanilla and cherry schnapps.
    • Finish
      Bitter-sweet rich roasted grains, molasses and a touch of licorice and chocolate mint, oak and mixed unsalted roasted nuts.

    very easy going Bourbon.. Vanilla, yes!

    but there's also a sweetness that feels very artificial when you've tasted a more diverse range of whiskies.
    The sweetness overpowers to much, leaving little else to discover in the glass.. but it remains an easy sipper that's enjoyable on summer evenings :)

    • Nose
      Very full and mild. Honey, toasted oak and cereal notes.
    • Taste
      Very strong and robust with rye and spicy oak. Followed by honey, a little vanilla and rather less sweetness. This Bulleit looks sharp, a few drops of water are good for him.
    • Finish
      For its 45%, the finish is surprisingly light and slightly dry. The medium-long finish is also slightly smoky.
