I wish I could tell you the batch number and the bottle number, but somehow, the numbers on the bottle were removed. You can actually do that by accident with your finger nail.
NOSE: golden raisins, vanilla blast, a strong pineapple note, rich and tropical, candied peels, sugary, fruit, some moist Christmas cake action, red and green apples that are overripe and starting to go bad. WITH WATER: overripe pineapple and vanilla are dominating. Some floral notes appear as well. Those who have tried Rodenbach Grand Cru - will find it a hint of it here. Apricots, peach preserve. Orange marmalade. Cola, black tea 23/25
TASTE: explosive, rich, spicy, not too sweet. It's on the drier side. Overripe pineapple, oak, overripe green apples, vanilla, shoe polish, leather. Vanilla with caramelized bananas, buttery, honey. You can get a note of watermelon after adding water. 22/25
FINISH: long, pineapple again, oak. 22/25
OVERALL SCORE: 90/100
OVERALL IMPRESSION: a really tasty, full-flavored bourbon that, in my opinion, is a very good addition to one's spirits collection.
