Nosing: Vanille Karamell Kirsche
Vanilla and caramel, a sort of creme brulee nose, brown sugar. There is some glacee cherry fruit in it, but also a touch of acetone if you really dig into it.

Taste: Eiche Nelke Zimt Süße
Sweet and intense arrival. Lots of oak and spiciness going on. Savoury sugar notes like dark treacle or muscovado sugar. Cinnamon and a touch of clove.

Finish: Karamell Eiche Gewürze
Medium length at best. A good continuation of the palate. Residual dark caramel flavours. For all the oak influence it isn't as dry as I would expect.

Comment:
This is what I would characterize as a well made middle of the road bourbon. It's very sweet up front with the sugar notes, but the heavy oak influence keeps it under control. The finish isn't super long which I'd count as a weakness. Otherwise however, it's very good stuff, and well priced.
