Peggy Noe Stevens 9.1
Nose: Elegant caramel and toasted pecans with vanilla custard. Milk chocolate and peppery highlights. Go deeper for raisin and figs.
Palate: Gorgeous deep caramel. Layers of oriental spices and maple syrup. Butterscotch, then peaches and apricots pull through. Oak notes.
Finish: Long, sweet, dry finish with pipe smoke and generous finish.
Comments: An all night long sipping whiskey. This handsome Bourbon gets my attention, it is truly enchanting.
Susan Reigler 9.0
Nose: Caramel nougat with spices, followed by aromas of pitted fruit and roasted cashews. It’s easy on the nose.
Palate: Rich caramel base with brown sugar and dark honey is studded with fruit and nuts. Smooth for the proof and warm.
Finish: Medium length and rich. The fruit and nuts fade into pepper before the tannins mark the end. Dry not bitter.
Comments: Water is this whiskey’s friend. Add a little for ripe fruit. Even an ice cube would not be out of place.
