Batch No: B-90-001
Nose: bakery smells of different fresh breads, oily and buttery, hints of fruit peel oils, hints of nuts (almond and hazelnuts), strong vinilla and oak, very sharp and crisp.
Palate: quite dry and prickly on the mouth at first, then becomes more sweet with notes of vinilla and oak, buttery cream, Marzipan, nougat, toasted bread, maybe a hint of bittersweet cocoa.
Finish: spirity heat, bitter-sweetness, buttered corn, almond paste, quite a big dose of oak.
Defiantly tastes older then 7 years. Also even though I know it's high strength it has got a serious alcohol kick to it, while I usually love that kind of heat from a good whiskey I remember the first time I had this I'd bittern my lip the day before and had quite a little blister in my mouth. Needless to say the normally enjoyable spirit heat nearly killed me. Anyway apart from that it's quite a lovely bourbon.
