Colour: bronze leaf
On the nose: well, first impressions are it noses just like a sherry cask with rich juicy fruits, crushed mint, linseed oil, honey roasted ham and worn leather. Are they sure this isn’t a sherry cask? Originally it was listed as such before arriving in store labelled as a bourbon.
In the mouth: really thick oozing quality in the mouth, a deep meaty richness aka roast beef and juniper berries. Hickory wood chips I use on the barbecue that mix sweetness and smoke perfectly. Toffee, marzipan and fresh orange add those layers of sweetness before a dry finish you often only see in wine casks finishes.
