Revisit an 81 with its new branding, but why? I thought the old version with '81' and '101' printed on the label are sort cleverly set them apart from other bourbon.
N- First ray of morning sun shined into a rustic carpenter workshop, the smells of wet raw wood, the sawing dust, the greasy coated irons that strikes up a sort of nostalgic feels. Opened up to herbs, curry leaves, basils, liquorice, red currant candy and coffee chocolate. Alluring nuances and highly enjoyable to nose at, when in the right mood for some bourbon. (87/21)
P- Creamy sweet chocolate followed by strong teh-oh. Adequately oak-ed with balanced sweetness on medium texture. (86/20)
F- Medium, smooth, the teh-oh becoming a marsala tea now as more spices emerged, minty. Crisp and chewy like over-roasted turkey breast. Deliciously sweet with compote of berries, liquorice and maple. (87/21)
B/B- 87/21 Amazing tea note, at right moment, this is a such a bang.
