    Budget bourbon from Heaven Hill.

    N: Relaxed/easy sweet metallic caramel.
    T: More of the same with just a hint of Mekhong [Thai spirit] about it, that’s the metallic caramel talking once again. Unlike the Mekhong, this is too very easy to drink. There’s no sense of that high abv though the low level would indicate that this bottle may have been hanging round the bar loosing potency. for some years.
    F: Finishes strongly with light sweet, light herbal and light vanilla cream.
    C: Ideal when you’re out and about with your mates and want to drink and not think.

    Good bourbon from the network of shops "Relax". Color: dark gold. The body is of medium density. A rather interesting fresh nose: a lot of nuts, vanilla, baked caramel, a mix of bananas, melons, watermelon and raspberries. On the other hand, the aroma is a little popular and often found in many manufacturers of paint and varnish themes. Alcohol appears only if you strongly lower your nose and take a deep breath. At the first sip comes soft vanilla creamy sweetness. Then a lot of tannins from nuts and burnt wood envelop and dry the throat. Next, a prickly pepper wave rolls in, so that the drink becomes hard to hold in the mouth and has to be swallowed (its not sickly degree probably affects). In the aftertaste again the notorious nuts, milk chocolate and prunes. Summing up, we can say that for their money this bourbon is a good product. It can be put above Jim Beam Double Oak, for example, which is worth such money, but it will lose to Wild Turkey.
