    I am impressed! You really do not expect much, if you hear that the whiskey matures only 2 years and that mainly fresh oak barrels are used and then somehow expects, despite the single malt rather with a young Bourbon blend. Not even close! As already written above the intensity and the maturity ago for me comparable to the Kavalan soloists. The storage conditions are similarly extreme here in the desert of Arizona.
    • Nose
      Wow, this is really unexpected, what a fruit bomb, on the bottle is nothing, but on the website of Hamilton Distillers is noted that the whiskey still got a finish in Madeira barrels and you can tell, intense, cherry syrup, really sweet, above is a wall of creamy caramel, behind it comes some leather, a touch of shoe factory, chocolate, creamy whole milk, now raspberry with light acidity, some spice from the fresh American oak barrels, which were certainly used here, as I said a little unexpected and therefore all the more beautiful, youth or cask strength in the nose not to guess.
    • Taste
      oily and intense, a taste explosion, chocolate, espresso, creamy, raspberry syrup, here again some fresh oak, which also gives a very light bourbon touch here, caramel, reminds me of the maturity and intensity of the Kavalan soloists, the alcohol is great involved.
    • Finish
      here also slightly nutty, the fruit is tart and goes towards fruit bowl or some pips, a little acid, creamy finish.
