Color
Tawny
Nose

Fruchtigkeit wie von Apfel und Aprikose, vllt. ein paar Beeren am Busch, Macadamianuss, Honig, nach langer Zeit auch Orangeat und Zimt

Taste

Aprikose, Kernobst, roter Bratapfel, Zimt, Nougat, Toffifee, Kirsche, dunkle Melasse, Orangenschale, schöne süß-säuerliche Fruchtigkeit mit dem Karamell des Bourbons und perfekt trinkbar trotz der %

Finish

Trocken-fruchtig, Aprikose, Orangenschale, trockene Eiche, Kräuter und Muskat, mittellang bis lang

Comments

Sehr leckerer und voller Bourbon, nicht der komplexeste der Welt, aber sehr wuchtig, fast wie ein Cognac vom Mundgefühl.

Nose

At first sharp alcohol, this one really needs a drop (just a drop) of water and 10-20min in the glass to open up, but then... very soft spices, fresh vanilla, profound dense sweetness, a lot of, but not too much oak, thick dark caramel, very nutty, overbrewed tea, mineral, limestone, burnt cereal, chocolate, even herbal tea, maybe some leather

Taste

its spicy and gentle at the same time, talisker-like pepper, deep and dark flavors, bittersweet oak, dense, creamy ristretto wich mascobado sugar, bunch of nuts (macadamia, cashew), just the right amount of thick, chewy, sirupy sweetness, herbal tea, black tea, again cereals. No trace of alcohol although I didn't add much water

Finish

Long, bittersweet, mouthcoating, really dry, again overbrewed tea, nuts and chocolate, some rye and "heat", pepper again, touch of menthol

Comments

No paint thinner at all! First sniff was disappointing, but if you give some time it'll offer you an enormous sweetness and various unexpected aromas, especially when experiment with water it shows different shades. There is just so much going on, I could nose it forever, love these nuts an this thick sweetness

fruity, corn, vanilla, sweet, sugary, 

Taste

abv really kicks in, super powerful, hints of vanilla, its fruity and sweet.

Finish

when the overpower 60% wears of its good flavours of vanilla and fruits. Sherry notes.

Comments

Amazing good bourbon.
