On the nose, I have vanilla, corn, nutmeg, sawdust and a hint of milk chocolate mint. After a while the rye spices take over, so does the milk chocolate mint with some cherry and orange.
The rye spices are really taking charge on the palate; the burn is well balanced by the mint that is more present now. The fruits flavours are vanishing rapidly with a little flash of liquorice at the end.
The finish leaves you with a soft sawdust more corn and sweetness and a little kick of bitterness if you breathe by the mouth. Quite long, the finish is not as complex as the nose but really enjoyable.
Now, I really like this new bottle, but if I would have reviewed my previous bottle, I would have not given it more than 76! There was no flaws but it was simply corn and sugar: almost no spices and some shy wood. I only bought this new bottle because it was on special. So, I am now questioning myself: Is there a consistency problem with BT or was I simply unlucky with an exceotionaly poor bottle. The scoring by my fellow malt enthusiasts, for this bourbon, are not helping me. So let the real BT stand up. Myself, I don't know which one is the real one.
