  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Not much to be found on this bourbon. Distilled and bottled by Continental in Philadelphia, Pa. Probably in Kinsey Distillery owned by Publicker Industries Co. (one of the big American liquor companies post-Prohibition. Kinsey distillery). I guess this miniature is from the mid 1960's.
    • Nose
      It starts very woody like walking in a old forrest after a rain shower. Campfire smoke. Walnut cake. Old furniture but also sweet vanilla notes and honey clover. Later on more on pine and menthol (Stimorol chewing gum).
    • Taste
      Wow, tastes really delicious! Rich and round with lots of butterscotch and toffee. Full bodied mouth texture covered with toasted oak and firm nuttiness intermingled with deep fruitiness of blackberries. Bitter chocolate later on. It's all very chewy and multi-layered.
    • Finish
      Quite long. Cinnamon and nutmeg fighting togehter who wants to be first. Some oak. Lovely balanced old-skool bourbon. I really like this.
