It’s exactly what I’ve promised since the beginning, tasting notes from emptied whisky glasses. But I’ll also fill other glasses with other drinks, which helps expand my horizons, enjoyments and tasting note repertoire. So don’t be surprised if I suddenly say “cherries” and begin to reminisce about lambic infused with sour ones.
This empty whisky glass won’t since those sour notes aren’t present. Instead, sweet, almost ripe summer cherries, which quickly dissolve into malt and vanilla, so typical! What else? Dried, porous pine, other wood. And now back to the malt, warm, like plain hot cereal, with just a sprinkled hint of melting brown sugar on top.
This is bourbon!
