    When I first tried this, some 5 years ago, I paid less than 35 EUR. Today’s bottling is around 55 EUR. A very good bourbon indeed. Thanks, Jan.
    • Nose
      On the one hand, the nose is honeysweet on loads of caramel and vanilla, but on the other hand also has a very green, herbal side. It reminds me somewhat of pine cones and varnish. In the background, I get some mokatine and coffee. A nice hint of dark fruit, but it does not come through completely.
    • Taste
      It is wonderfully creamy and mouth coating and immediately feisty from the spices. Think black pepper and a truckload of nutmeg. The dark fruit returns, somewhat more prominent than on the nose, as well as the coffee. After the spices fade somewhat, it turns soft and sweet. 
    • Finish
      Feel free to call this a long finish, with some oak and spices at the death.

    The rye doesn't quite seem to mix with the underlying caramel, and vanilla but the overall flavor is good. It does have a rather vigorous and peppery palate - more than its ABV would indicate. Best to let it sit in the glass too and allow some of the gasoline notes to blow off which will reveal a nice, powdered sugar and caramel nose. Some orange in there too. Has a quick finish with a rather bitter bite. All in all, I feel like I got my money's worth - about $30 here in the US.

    A decent bourbon that benefits a lot from just a bit of added water. without water added it's nice and decent, albeit a bit thin and predictable in development, and I would mark it 77-78. With water it steps up a notch and it becomes a very decent + 80 points bourbon
    • Nose
      81 81
      vanilla, banana, metally, creamy, bread/biscuity. Adding water rounds it off nicely as the metallic notes vanish. a
    • Taste
      82 82
      soft arrival, vanilla, spices, again that metallic (which is in fact a bit unpleasant). adding water changes all that as the metallic note is gone and some red fruity tones become more prominent. A big improvement
    • Finish
      80 80
      long and warm with banana's and nutty tones that round of wit spices (nutmeg). here the added water doesn't improve anything as it diminishes and shortens the finish.
