Nose: Rich and floral with perfumed leater, lilac, prunes and ginger caramel. Very delicate and floral.
Palate: Not as sweet as the nose suggests. Surprisingly little oak influence for a bourbon as old as this. Barley sugar, baked apple, Autumn berries, particularly apple and pear, and some dark chocolate and menthol notes.
Finish: A faint but distinctive and insistent sweet caramel flavour lingering. Very moreish.
Overall: A delicate and well formed bourbon.
