Member Ratings and Notes
Sku
 
N:  Pretty typical mid-range bourbon nose, vanilla and corn.
P:  Molasses, fresh cut wood, some soapy, perfumy notes, pine.
F:  Sweet.

Much sweeter than the top cut version (Barrel 35).

N: Earthy, with kind of a clay/play-doh note to it; hint of marshmallow; some vanilla; lightly grainy. 

 

P: Creamy, mouth-coating. The clay/play-doh note continues through; white pepper, light black cherry note; toffee, vanilla. Sweet.

 

F: Grains, somewhat dry and with a slightly bitter wood finish. Moderately long, with some peppery spice and nice heat.

 

Amazing that the difference between this and #35 is the location on the tree. This has a lot more going on that interests me.
