Thoroughly enjoyable Bourbon, which is not a run-of-the-mill virgin oak monster, but instead offers more if you let it settle and dilute a little. The nose is heady and the palate is impactful. Lots of powerful aromas and flavors here. Great value for money!
Virgin oak with lots of coconut, vanilla, and nail polish. A typical virgin oak-sourness is arriving too, accompanied by charred oak and a mixture of spices – allspice and nutmeg primarily, with a touch of lavender perhaps. The sour vinegary notes give rise to associations of pickle juice and mustard seeds.
Spicy arrival – lots of vanilla buried underneath mountains of oak. Corn sweetness, nutmeg-sprinkled short bread, and cinnamon rolls.
Long. Vegetal oak tannins linger for minutes.
