Rob Allanson – 8.5

Nose: A huge yet gentle nose centering on caramel chews, fresh baked cookies and spiced honey cashew nuts. Butterscotch fondant and wood.

Palate: Gentle and smooth. Plenty of  sweet caramel notes. Dried orange and vanilla ice cream. Hints of fresh figs and cherries too.

Finish: A little short but full of sweetness and a little saline minerality in there too.

Comments: A great, enjoyable Bourbon. To be sipped and savored with friends.

Sam Coyne – 8.0

Nose: Really sweet. Toffee, fudge and milk chocolate cookies. Earthy cereal notes and finally a little oak spice at the end.

Palate: More of the caramel, but this time it covers plum fruits and figs. There’s a biscuity edge too and hints of peppered rye-like spice. 

Finish: Middling, but sweet before ending up with earthy cereals. 

Comments: Very nice, but quite reserved and nothing too punchy. A rounded number that has its place on everyone’s shelf.
