  9. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Easy drinking easy, 23 € / 0.7 are OK, but I would rather put 3 euros on it and take the more complex, fuller, rounder Black Bush in the literle bosom.
    Maybe the Red Bush comes to the "trained" Bourbon drinker better, is supposedly developed American market.
    • Nose
      A bit of alcohol / solvent in the beginning, that can stand something ... then mild, pleasant, vanilla, cereals, honey, a touch of nut
    • Taste
      according to 40% mild, but not too watery, mainly caramel / nougat, a bit woody-spicy, you can already see barrel, simple, but tasty
    • Finish
      medium-long, light brandy note, dark chocolate, then dry, slightly woody

  11. Archer scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Is worse in this price range. In the pub to Guinness, why not.
    • Nose
      Only slightly grassy notes, floral and fruity, mild. Vanilla and honey. It does not hurt, nose.
    • Taste
      Vanilla and some wood, canned mandarins, some herbs. The range of flavors is not great, but what is there harmonizes well with each other.
    • Finish
      Rather short and dry at the same time, residual vanilla and a harsh logging.

  12. whisky-mischel did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Color is sound and smoke ;-) The nose is pleasant, perhaps with a litigious sharpness. Otherwise pretty soft. He can take some time in the glass to develop. Then sweet flavors emerge, vanilla, sweet apple, floral aromas, smells good. On the palate .... easy drinking, as it does not scratch or burn, beautiful woody aromas, the nose is confirmed, slightly spicey, nice and soft Finish, too fine. There remains a pleasant spiciness on the tongue. Easy drinking!
