The nose has a sort of soapy bourbon note. The palate has some nice rye spice along with those soapy bourbon notes; the different notes alternate through the tasting. The finish is spicy on the palate but soapy on the nose. With some air, the soapy notes fade a bit into just a vague sweetness.  

 

Overall, not much too it.

n:  Bourbony of course.  A good one...

 

p:  Leather and wax.  Spearminy and vanilla.  Just a solid bourbon that isn't too hot.

Overwhelming alcohol vapors. Honeycomb and graham crackers linger underneath. More emerges as the alcohol blows off. Coconut oil, wet hay, pepper and a bit of citrus.

Better on the palate. Oily texture with rye spice and bitter greens.  There's old library stuff here: mahogany, lacquer and old wood.

Mixed feeling about this. B/B-

Nose of raw, young, peat.

Palate is sweet with a big blast of peat and very light malt.

Finish:  peat with brown sugar.

 

Pretty one note, but it's a good note.

Fantastic!  White pepper and other spices that are difficult to identify (in a crowded room).  Great malt.

Nose: Nice, malty nose with some sweet, fruit candy notes.

Palate: Malty/fruity, then a touch salty. Strong for its abv.

Finish: Malt with a touch of pepper.

 

Really nice and drinkable. The saltiness gives it a little extra complexity that makes it stand out.

 

B/B+
