Colour: lovely deep copper

Nose: If only No.7 smelled like this, no glue note I always find in the cheaper expression just a lovely corn sweetness married with old leather and oak on the back. No reason to cover this up with mixers or water.

Palate: starts sweet moves quickly through to a delightful light spice which when held develops through into a lovely warmth, not much in the way of fruit coming through but rather a liquorice stick which I personal enjoy. Quite rich texture and coats mouth.

Finish: Dry oak and more liquorice which is medium in length, leaves mouth dry and just wanting another sip.

Overall I really enjoyed this bottle but would not pay the premium for it again.

Rick No. L-25. Barrel 14-6318 Bottled 11/5/14

I usually like JD Single Barrels - and I enjoy tasting different barrels side-by-side to note the subtle differences.

I quite like the flavour profile, this is my second bottle the first had much more going on with fruit and spices but I can get FR1B for around 5-8 euro less and Blanton's or WTRB for 4-5 more and while a good whiskey personally I know where my money is going. I would buy this again if the price was right but while it is in the mid price range for bourbon in Europe it will be a long time before it happens. I have your reviews on JD 1b's Talexander and it sounds like an expensive hobby unless you are getting miniatures.

Alas, I'm not getting miniatures. But I don't imbibe on the JD 1bs too much so it's more than manageable!
