    And again a bourbon which I like ....
    First and foremost, this whiskey is dominated by the powerful aroma I associate with cough syrup, and although this bottling has an alcohol content of over 50%, I find it balanced and mild. Sweet, fruity, slightly sprittig and characterized by subtle smoke flavors - yes, this bottling has character and I like it well!

    • Nose
      Creamy amber rests in the glass while from far away spicy sawdust and sweet sugar are smelling. Old apricots mix with dark caramel and creamy orange, a hint of sweet peach and glacial sweet exudes its sweet and fresh aroma. Sweet vanilla dissolves from the dark fruit flavors, honey and old toffee mingle with milk chocolate. From the glacier ice candy is slowly a peppermint drop, the nose is suddenly extremely complex and the flavors change every second. Gorgeous!
    • Taste
      Cough drop in combination with spicy oak, better I can not define the first impression. Spicy and extremely herbaceous, the second sip flows through the palate. Subtle sharpness sticks to the palate, sawdust and a touch of sprightly glue stick to the tongue. Hints of smoke and burned wood follow the dark fruit flavors, cough syrup mixes with herbs and spices. Tart and dark aromas stick between tongue and palate, burnt sugar Currants are ensnared by fresh peppermint, sour cherries and a hint of grapefruit are added. Sweet, tart, spicy and powerful, the taste slowly changes to the aftertaste.
    • Finish
      A combination of fresh mint and slightly sprittigen glue starts the reverberation. Dark and spicy oak elements rest on the tongue, citrus aromas mingle with sweet vanilla. With herbs and spices the aftertaste sounds slow and leaves next to burnt sugar, sweet vanilla and fresh mint a wonderful mouthfeel.

    not at all bad the drop
    • Nose
      Campfire smoke and light-heartedness, somehow has islay flavors, slightly maritime notes, a lot of fruity sherry flavors / cherries with an earthy note
    • Taste
      Very sweet in the taste, nice strong red fruits with some bitterness and remaining smoke on the palate
    • Finish
      Medium-length finish with neat dark chocolate slightly warming
