Let me just say that before dipping my nose into this one the colour was quite mesmerizing.
Tasted without any water at 47%.
Nose: Pungent sweet & sour green apples with fudge. A rich and creamy well rounded cloud of syrupy-acidic nutty notes. Some caramel, vanilla and chocolate.
Palate: Flavourful and big. Sourish arrival with green apple, wood, and smoke. A fruity and cherry-esque following, sweet and vibrant on the tongue. Packs a nice smooth, yet sourish spicy punch.
Finish: Bittersweet and dry. Some butterscotch, and creamy notes.
Conclusion: This bottle won't last long, its just that good. The initial tasting had no water. Upon adding a dash of water this opens up to a completely different experience.
With the alcohol cut down, the flavors have more room to expand and complexity with time. A very smooth yet complex easy drinking bourbon. Can’t say it reminds of anything else on the market. It’s got its own character which is very much worth the price. This is a sweet-sour-dry, yet complex bourbon that goes down superbly with a dash of water to open it up to its full potential and development. Highly recommended.
