For around 35 euros a bottle, you can't go wrong if you're into pure, not too complex ex-Bourbon whiskys.
This is a whisky to drink alongside, without having to / be able to be analyzed in a deep and complex manner.
[80 - 76 = 'really not bad'-whisky --- but do I need a (second) bottle?]
light fruits and stone fruits (apple, pear, peach; after a certain time an aroma of unripe bananas appears) as well as a floral aroma (reminiscent of a flower meadow in summer with a dash of lavender) In the background, light spice (cloves and cinnamon) and a malty note. The sweetness is noble and only comes into play in the form of powdered sugar.
very sweet in the beginning. The spice is held back at first and arrives on the tongue with a little delay, but rather restrained peppery. It swings into a slight bitterness, which quickly turns into a malty note. The fruits do not come out quite as strongly, although noticeably there.
Sweeter and fruity on the second sip. Bitterness no longer occurs, but the malt / grain note emerges again, which goes well with the whisky in its entirety.
the malty note stays in the mouth for a relatively long time. The light fruits remain for a while, but the malt note is dominant.
On the second sip, some oak sticks to the maltiness.
