64% ABV

Nose: Prunes, ginger, raisins, apples, toffee, hints of roses. With water, vanilla, cream crackers, chocolate.
Mouthfeel: Light body, astringent, thickens slightly, tingly.
Tasting: Sweet. Prunes, raisins, dried apple rings, toffee, orange peel, hints of chillies. With water, slightly bitter, vanilla, dark chocolate.
Finish: Medium. Cream crackers, raisins, ginger, orange peel.


Oof! The angels didn't take much of this one, or perhaps they didn't get a chance. It's 6 to 8 years old, which means they either have poor records or it's a blend of a couple of barrels. It's fruity and slightly rancio, with a dry biscuity finish With water it opens up, becomes bitter, reminds me of a really good single estate dark chocolate, perhaps from Latin America. There's not much of this bourbon around, and I understand why.


I like this a lot.
