This bourbon was distilled at Early Times but partly aged in the cellars of the new distillery Labrot & Graham.
Copper-colored, slightly ethereal nose (this goes for ventilation) turns sweet, fresh, floral, spicy and woody. Mouth soft enough despite drought, grows on vanilla and floral (violet). The final a bit abrupt lack of material and has a bitterness that may interfere.
Amber color, oily appearance.
But discreet nose bursting with finesse and delicacy after a moment. Notes of red fruits, pepper, cannnelle, cardamom, vanilla and liquorice.
Soft and melted in attack with a smooth material to the end of the tasting.
Final sweet spices with a nice note of candied ginger.
In North America, production of eau-de-vie of cereals began with the arrival of European settlers in the 17th and 18th centuries. The English, Scottish and Irish were indeed very fast heart to find alcohol they were familiar.
