|Purchased at:||Sample from Gillman|
|Info on this bottle:||Bottled in 1947 at 7 years old|
|Nose:||Tasted in a Glencairn glass. Nice orange to amber color with good legs. Sweet with citrus fruit and vanilla and a hint of oak wood. Not overly complex but nice on the nose.|
|Taste:||The taste seems a little thin at first without any oiliness but then it comes on strong with that citrus fruitines and caramel. A little sweet spice comes toward the end.|
|Finish:||Wow! The finish is where this bourbon shines. That sweet citrus fruit and caramel transforms into a bit of dry wood and citrus fruit until finally it all balances out with sweet vanilla and oak tannins. I love this finish!|
|Overall:||Thanks Gary for this sample. It is a very good example of what would be considered a young bourbon by today's standards showing that maturity is more important than age. If I tasted this bourbon thinking it was made today, I would say at least 10 years ald if not older and I would be suprised that so much of the original distillate flavor came through after all of that time in the barrel.|
