Nose: it starts with a really fat nose, nice oily, first beats a lot of apple flavor from the glass, followed by a good portion of caramel with some sea salt, the corn comes through well, he has a great spicy flavor of cinnamon, cloves and even discreet Kardamon, in the background swinging even a little smoke of the strong burned barrels, the sweetness drifts again and again in the direction of Rumrosinen from, even some tobacco box can be found
Taste: good onset, oily, you can roll well over the tongue, clear sweetness to corn and caramel, then beat the spices again fully, plus a decent portion of oak
Finish: The finish is long, spicy wood, licorice, caramel, some salt are noticeable, behind some beeswax, it is dry, but not bitter
Water: No, the alcohol is actually perfectly integrated. Nevertheless, the attempt: Well, it goes quite well with water, the fruity apple and the caramel are stronger, while the spicy side moves slightly more into the background, some shoe polish shows, the liquorice from the finish is now also in the Nose. Without water he likes me better.
Conclusion: This is really a great bourbon. OK, who can not do anything with the basic properties of Boubon Whiskey, should also stay away from here. He would like to recommend everyone else. For me personally, my best ever Bourbon, even if he was my dearest with just under 100 EUR - but the money is well laid out in my view, which is a really good drink - 88 points
