Nose: It’s mellow and a bit thin on approach. The vanilla stands out the most but there’s also a prominent chalky note. The fruitiness with mainly cherries resides in the background. There’s a hint of acetone and some rye spice on top. There is no oakiness present on the nose.
Mouth: It starts out a bit watery, with just a tiny amount of spicyness building up. It’s still vanilla heavy and the cherries and some dusty corn notes are in the backseat. It’s not overly sweet and there’s just a touch of brown sugar intertwined with the vanilla. There’s some liquorice root and anis seeds coming through but the oak is still missing.
Finish: A pop of the fruitiness soon gets replaced with vanilla, brown sugar sweetness and liquorice root. It doesn’t last to long before everything but the liquorice disappears. This finally leaves room for some oakiness. It’s not unpleasant but all the flavours are muted through everything creating a somewhat dull experience. The oak note is kind of clingy in the end.
This is a whisky without much information to back it up. It’s a sourced straight bourbon, but nothing is disclosed on which distillery it gets the spirit from. It’s ”produced” by Bartizan BV, a company in the Netherlands.
