Nose

Pineapple, banana, gooseberries, and honeydew. This is very fruity, but also quite evidently Bourbon with a lot of new oak and pistachios. Fragrant magnolias are in there somewhere as well. 

Taste

Sweet arrival. Astringent virgin oak – quickly drying. Toffy, banana, and roasted coconut.

Finish

Medium-long. Rather dry with lots of menthol, and even some coffee.

Comments

This was quite pleasant actually! With some air, this Bourbon reveals some if its inner qualities, namely the floral fragrance on top of its usual virgin oak blasts. Certainly always good value.

Nose

The nose is rather subtle and still complex enough on toffee and orange peel, leather, honey and touches of oak. Some marshmallows appear, together with some spices.

Taste

It is soft on the palate and even a bit dry with touches of oak, dark fruit, cocoa and roasted nuts. Make that almonds. The orange peel and toffee from the nose are present here as well, but the spices are much louder than on the nose. Nevertheless, this remains a soft and round bourbon.

Finish

The finish is medium long and remains sweet on mostly toffee and honey.

Comments

This is actually a wonderful, sweet and very quaffable bourbon. Even is bourbon is not your cuppa, I think you will like this one. All round pleaser. Thanks for the sample, Jan.

I assume this is the same version as Ralfy's bottle, in review #662:

This is good whisky especially at price point.  Other bourbons I prefer but don't shy from this one.

Bourbon classique aux arômes de caramel, vanille, crème brûlée.
La bouche présente une attaque sucrée puis un côté bien tannique apparaît qui subsiste jusqu’en finale.
Plutôt bon mais en deça du Woodford Reserve à mon goût.
