From 2 ex-bourbon hogsheads. Blind tasting.
Nose: Immediately some gin notes, juniper and a hint of liquorice. That disappears after a while and instead I get orange, milk chocolate and eventually malt. Water brings out pear ice lollies and vanilla.
Palate: Orange chutney (is there such a thing?), in other words: Spiced orange marmalade. Grain dust and a little metal.
Comment: I like it. I’d love a top-up and would even buy a bottle if the chance offered.
