  1. El Bastardo did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    I can imagine that the finish in particular shares the tastes. Those who like it especially like it and those who don't like it, it finally pissed off here. Thumbs up from me.

      Strong like oak and vanilla. A little later sweet tones appear, but somehow not fruity at all. Doesn't smell like 47% at all.
    • Taste
      60 60
      Doesn't taste like 47% either. It is quite spicy, but in terms of alcoholic strength I would almost classify it as "mild". In addition, lots of oak and little else. But all of this is very voluminous and a bit sweet. Pure bourbon!
    • Finish
      60 60
      It remains a pleasant woody, but not bitter, tone that coats the tongue and the entire mouth. All of that plus nice notes of vanilla.

  2. Joband scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Age shows with a nice amount of wood on the palate but never overwhelming. Vanilla and caramel are there to offer a sweet counterpoint to the tanins. Amazingly balanced. Really sad to see the age statement go...
