.few – bourbon

whiskyspeller_dbtd_bourbon_02

“This spirit, distilled through timeless liquor-making techniques, utilises a three-grain recipe that infuses generations of Southern tradition with the spiciness of northern rye and a touch of malt for smoothness. FEW is hand-crafted through a small-batch process in charred oak barrels to age its bourbon whiskey.”

Nose: spicy, bay leaves, herbs, dill, samphire, slightly sweet, liquorice, smoked salmon (what?!)
Palate: sweet, honeycomb, spicy, star anise, cloves, herbs, bay leaves
Finish: medium long (sadly), sweet, thin honey, hints of oak

Conclusion: Very nice. Hints of spices and quite a bite. I wouldn’t mind stumbling into a bottle of this at some point or try the other spirits of the brand. Not overly outspoken in one particular flavour or all over the place with just too many, but a modest, good example of what a bourbon can be.

.this bourbon was behind the second door in the Drinks by the Dram Bourbon Advent Calendar 2016 which was kindly given to us by the Drinks by the Dram team, thanks for sharing!
