- Tasty as usual, good Bourbon for 55 €, this batch comes in the nose very dry over, almost dusty, no glue, in the mouth then particularly fruity (for Baker's), red berries, cherry, nut and lots of wood
- Sweet and tasty ....
The colleague will hit you soon, sweet vanilla with a lot of caramel in the nose. Cooked fruits, come in the form of pear, apple, apricot. From the background comes a slightly sour note. Toasted bread with butter and some fresh leather. A cool touch. Something like mint.
But strong, slightly bitter-nutty onset. Seasoning pushes, but then immediately makes room for the sweet vanilla caramel candy. The freshly toasted toast with butter is also found again. The second sip is also the cooked fruit. Pear and apple. Has something of fresh melted dark chocolate.
Medium. Staying creamy with sweet espresso.
- Should be enjoyed neat. Alcohol is well integrated. Time and air helps a lot. Altogether a multi-layered whiskey, really quaffable and quite affordable as well.
Pure: liquorice, oak, freshly ground pepper and allspice. Some dry herbs (thyme and rosemary), nutmeg and fresh ginger. Then freshly ground aniseed seed. Becomes milder with time and some air. A few red berries and a bit of leather at the end.
Water brings a certain alcoholic spiciness, which fades quickly, then some cooling menthol. The pepper and the spices recede. Instead some vanilla pudding with caramel sauce.
Freshly ground black pepper, beside a beautiful sweetness and spices (cloves, nutmeg and allspice). Oily mouthfeel. Despite its high alcohol very harmonious and soft. Dark chocolate (>70%). Water brings liquorice, the spices condense with a little caramel to Ricola sweets, some cooling menthol. At the end freshly broken branches and some wormwood.
Long and intense, pepper and herb candies linger. Warming and mouth filling.
- Unfortunately, I don't get into the subject of bourbon. Sorry!
It will be my last. Only the Eagle Rare 10 did it to me. I always have it on the shelf. I gave up everything else. I'm not the type to do it. But this bottle is sure to be a good bourbon. That's why I leave the numerical rating neutral on average.
Intense, full, deep, pleasant. Slightly sweet. A very intense caramel. Maybe even butterscotch, only less sweet. Gestures, sweet brown cream. There is a trace of a plant or herbal note. Roasted brown sugar. Some spices. Pepper.
Sweetness. Caramel. Full, intense flavor. Lots of spices. Very spicy language, even sharp. Chili. Black pepper, but even stronger. A very intense caramel.
Intense caramel. Very intense. Lots of spices. Sharpness. Chili. Black pepper. Kajmak, but less sweet. Burnt sugar. Long finish.
- Bakers 7yo Bourbon 53.5%. Purchased Nov 2018, consumed July 2019. Aroma is very woody - fragrantly so - toffee and petals, very high-quality wood here. Beautiful, complex woody spiced notes, some dried petals. Some green grassy notes. Beautiful. Top class. Taste is also very woody, fragrant petals, Jasmine, oily body and richness. Dry oil vibes - the spirit almost evaporates off the tongue immediately. Dense and compact spirits. Crayon-like vibes and hot spirit fight through the toffee. Mostly booze heat on the linger. Lacks depth on the finish. In the end it was quite one-dimensional but as punchy as you like. A mixed bag but a very good bourbon on the whole.
