Intro: A 330ml bottle, 2020 vintage, bottle 581 of 1000. Poured into a Tilquin stemmed glass.
Appearance: A clear copper colour, with a one finger off white head that dissipates fairly quickly to a ring around the glass, while leaving some decent lacing.
Aroma: Nice restrained bourbon, oak, vanilla, marmalade, honey, yuzu, almost candy like.
Taste: Sweet, whiskey sour, citrus zest, orange, pineapple, yuzu, lime, wheat, oak, with light bourbon notes.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with soft to moderate carbonation.
Overall: It reminds me of one of my favourite cocktails, the whiskey sour, so it was definitely enjoyable and easy to drink for me.
