I've had a few American bourbons and/or whiskeys and have to say this is my favourite so far.
The color is gold to copper and the dram is very oily. The liquid literally sticks to the glass for minutes. Wonderful.
The nose is incredible. Loads of vanilla and coconut, bitter nuts and caramel.
On the palate he's very rich, creamy but soft. The vanilla returns, accompanied by lemon and nutmeg. Quite spicy, but wonderfully balanced.
The finish is long and sweet, but you get a bitter kick in the teeth right before the dram's death. The fact that this is 45% ABV most likely has something to do with that.
This is - for me - by far the best American dram I've had so far (OK, admittedly, that's only 5, this one included).
In Belgium, you can find this one for 20 to 25 EUR, which is actually a bargain for the quality you get.
