    Received the last 1/3 of a bottle from my brother. Not sure if he's just pawning of an unwanted bourbon or if he's trying to convert me.

    It's good, but I find the alcohol more harsh and prominent in bourbon than in all my higher abv single malts. I feel like I'm drinking hard liquor when drinking bourbon. I'll take any of my Octomores over this any day of the week. Straight.

    I like it more. There is something to discover here and one is not "just" fed up with typical vanilla and caramel.
    • Nose
      Undiluted, it leaves a strong and at first a little closed impression. It's not all that bourbon-typical, vanilla and caramel-heavy, the notes are slightly behind those of freshly polished wood. I think he wants time and attention, that water I will save myself today. Honey comes out, followed by fresh, juicy applesauce. After the first sip I think to take some mint true, but not intrusive but finely integrated.
    • Taste
      The Alk is very well integrated. Creamy with sweet apple, caramelized almonds and vanilla. Will be spicy and slightly woody, but not bitter. Finally, a sweet orange marmalade is added.
    • Finish
      Sweet and strong caramelized walnuts, oak, will be a bit drier, not too long
