Heaven Hill, Fighting Cock 6 yo, 51,5 %

Review #243
It is bottled at 51,5 % but it is surprisingly gentle to the nose. Toasted oak and nice vanilla mixed with some sweet fruity notes. In the end, I find some sugar notes, almost like the sweetness you get from rum.

Very powerful! Dried fruits, sweet cake, burned oak and all very well balanced in the taste. When the first rush has settled, a long warm finish starts. First some fruity notes, but in the end it is almost only oak that is present.

A simple but good Bourbon that delivers! You can easily give it some, or a lot of, water. Don´t give it too much though, as it drowns and get a bit boring. I will give this 85/100 (21/21/21/22).
