The nose is reminiscent of the entrance to the brewery. From light to dark, from sweet to sour, from sweet to musty. Everything is there and, in my opinion, very much dependent on your own daily form. Unfortunately, that's not my expected bourbon nose. Where are the 20 years? How do I recognize 1st Fill Ex Bourbon? But I think that's intentional, because there are enough lovers out there who appreciate this "old school" very much.
Powerfully spicy and delicately bitter with salted caramel. Feels nervous and erratic at first. The formula for success is that the longer in the mouth, the better it gets. Then comes barley, sweet honey and strong wood flavor. She remains the main act in this gig. In the transition it goes slightly towards mint with delicate citrus vanilla. Without any disturbing influence and quite pleasantly sweet, it then goes into the finish. No rough edges.
Medium to long and surprising, it remains present in the summary of all experiences. Sweet, sour and spicy, it ends its standard appearance upright and does not ask me to refill it. The issue of getting supplies is also not required. I would like to thank Uwe (little dram) for the great rehearsal, because it saved me € 130.
I really appreciate that.
PS. What I remember is the excellent fragrance in the empty glass 1 day later. Respect!
