Sazerac

Rob Allanson 8.7

Nose: Grilled American cheese slices, sweet pickles and warm brioche bread. Buttered waffles. Caramel chews and blackened marshmallows over a wood barbecue.

Palate: Huge sweetness at first, hard candy, almonds in sugar coating, milk chocolate and vanilla fudge. Then the oak shows its grip.

Finish: Smooth and sweet, then dries out with those oak tannins.

Comments: A wonderful Bourbon all balanced with the spice and sweetness.

Sam Coyne 7.5

Nose: Vanilla and cereals, but isn’t the most open. Faintly spicy right at the end.

Palate: Vanilla, cinnamon and bubblegum. Spicy oak prickles the tip of the tongue. Gets faintly herbal, with coriander, mint and mown lawns. 

Finish: Short and fleeting. Herbal again. 

Comments: Kind of goes through the motions without leaving too much of an impression. Does all that you’d expect a Bourbon to do, but doesn’t have that one moment of ‘wow’.
