    Rowan's Creek Bourbon 

    N: spiced apple butter, apple skins, a slight pecan nuttiness, and vapors like a calvados 

    T: Calvados! Tawny port. somewhere between the savoriness and roundness of a dry fruit and the lighter flavor of something freshly baked fruit. 

    F: silky, raisin-stuffed bagels, and Pannettone cake Willett has done it again with the fruitiness, but this is more like a holiday drink with the apple and baked golden raisin character.

  3. MaltMartin scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Not one of the most exiting bourbon I've tasted. For me it lacks depth what other bourbons have.
    • Nose
      A bit restrained. Needs time to open up. Vanilla and sweet barley. Caramel and stewed fruit.
    • Taste
      Spicy and mellow oak at the same time. Liquorice. A bit one-dimensional an thin. Not the punchy style of Noah's Mill, Eagle Rare of Elijah Craig.
    • Finish
      Not that long. Bitterness, oaky.

    It started off closed, but my patience was rewarded with a very
    beautiful bourbon, soft and accessible.
    • Nose


      The nose is very closed and needs hand warmth to open up. Apart from the
      obligatory vanilla and caramel, I get citrus and mild spices. Remarkable amount
      of oak. Freshly sawn planks. Dusty as an attic that has not been used for ages.
      Even some boiled vegetables.
    • Taste


      It rolls over the tongue unhindered, moutcoating and sweet on vanilla,
      caramel and a touch of citrus. Quite some oak and heavy on spices.
    • Finish


      The finish is medium long, remains fruit, but it is the oak that has the
      last laugh.
