    A pretty bourbon, rather "sweet" as a whole even if it can be lively at times.
    • Nose
      Without being a sugarcane specialist I would say that the nose is very close to a rum anyway in its first fragrance. The bourbonesque side then appears on the solvent, fruits, citrus (orange, grapefruit) and vanilla. A powerful but not aggressive nose.
    • Taste
      Very well balanced, the alcohol is very well integrated. It is in the continuity of the nose that is between Rum and Bourbon on orange, vanilla and spices. The bitterness of the oak is there to pamper all this small world especially at the end of the mouth.
    • Finish
      Medium and powerful on spices and gourmet vanilla. He kept under the pedal until the end and it's pretty well seen from him.

    Repeatedly nosing the empty glass reveals new fragrances each time.

    A good quality bourbon. Compaired to others I think the price is fair.
    • Nose
      Like most bourbons there is vanilla, but this one is rather mild and gentle. It's dark and sweet. The charred wood is really noticable, and combined with burnt brown sugar the nose is closer to rum than to bourbon. Dark almost sherry like fruit, and a hint of bitter herbs. Nosing the empty glass without alcohol fumes there's caramel and a zesty stout like bitterness.
    • Taste
      Initially quite sweet and fruity with a short burst of mandarine and mango notes.

      The ABV is just about right, giving it a slight spicy bite.

      Charred oak takes over. Again there's something that remind me more of dark rum than of bourbon.
    • Finish
      Very nice ballance between sweetness, spices and a light bitterness.

      Medium+ lenght.
