Tasting Notes

Nose

Very rich and fruity on the nose, with sumptuous notes of dried fruit, raisins and barley sugar, countered by brioche and fennel.

Palate

Easy drinking and smooth mouthfeel, with a generous helping of sweet spice – cinnamon and nutmeg – along with refreshingly juicy fruit.

Finish

The richness remains, but there’s freshness in the form of black pepper that delivers a kick of spicy zing.

Comment

An excellent bourbon that will please both newcomers and connoisseurs. Very well balanced and moreish.
