    sample.

    I love the form. Old but not overoaked. However the profile is very standard Bourbon. Not enough idiosyncracy.
    • Nose
      Very fruiy, typical Bourbon cask notes. Mirabelles, apples, honey Vanilla. Also, sweet white wine with a hint of minerality.  Quite a bit of coffee and and hint of banana. Even a hint of raisins. Very soft.
    • Taste
      Incredibly soft. This one has no alcoholic bite at all. Some vanilla pudding. A very faint salty note. Slightly vegetal. Nice marzipan note. Cognac style floral note (i.e. good perfumy note).
    • Finish
      Rather short, kinda dry and fizzy now. Brandy-ish after taste.

    n: a very balanced nose and I would have sworn that there is some sherry 
        influence, knowing there is none. it is rather fruity on peaches and red apples,
        a hint of vanilla and a little varnish.quite fresh after all these years.
    t: juicy mouth feel, medium sweet, fruity on apples, a little vanilla, very spicy on
       ginger and nutmeg. something floral/perfumy getting a little bitter after a while.
    f: medium to long, quite bitter
    86/100
