Door number three of the Drinks by the Dram Bourbon Advent Calendar reveals a sample of the Roughstock Montana Bourbon Whiskey bottled at 45%. On the nose I can find strong notes of nutty raisin bread with some almonds, pecan and walnuts mixed into it. Warm cereal and pepper between sweet caramel and coffee notes. There is a fruity and floral side also in it but I cant seem to pinpoint them.
Spices, spearmint, maple syrup, malty, blackcurrant, blueberry, cherry, red apple, orange, banana and a hint of chocolate. On the medium length finish some rose water notes are mixed in between the vanilla, raisins and dried apricots. Between all this I find also a light bitter nutty note. Interesting dram, but very sweet overal. Thanks for sharing it Drinks by the Dram!
