    I'm not a Bourbon guy, more like a fan to rye whiskey and Irish. But this is THE best post-2017 bottling whisk(e)y I've had so far.

    WLW has a charming Rendang & Hawthorn flavor that reminds me a lot of things, call me a biggot, it's better than any post-2017 single malt even those price-y ones.
