So one of the benefits of living in London is that the number of bourbon nuts is still relatively small compared to the USA, and living in London I can get to the shops when limited releases first arrive. We pay a little more (usually about double the price) but we can get want we want if we're prepared to seek it out. I've managed to get a couple of these.
Colour is light golden brown, oily in the glass.
Nose is the most sublime thing about this. Oily, unctuous, fragrant, perfumed, rich caramels, muscovado sugars, sweet vinous grapes, sweet corn oils, touch of spearmint, cranberry, raspberry, red berry fruit, soft deep oak, vanilla custard.
Taste is strangely light and oily in mouthful, but spicy and hot. However, the flavours roll over the hotness. Red berry fruits, cranberry, spice, mint, muscovado sugars, sweet white vinous grapes, soft aged vanilla oak, raisins.
Finish is big a long. Raisins, caramels, cranberry, vanilla and oak. No tannins at all. Smooth and loooong.
