  1. Issie did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Honey, cereals a little dusty, some earth, peach, grapes, tangerine, really sweet
    • Taste
      Honey, cereals, peach, then it turns into some earth, with a little dark chocolate and at the end some pepper

  2. Vallado scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Blindtasting. Very similar to the Johnnie Walker 10 Rye Cask Finish, slightly better (but also more expensive).

      Sweet, almost like bourbon, but without glue, caramel, sweet-citrus-like, kumquats, then the whole thing turns into spicy before a note of fresh apple carving stands out.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Spicy - Cheyenne pepper - and spicy with an almost "dull" mouthfeel, thin texture, then popcorn sweetness, almost "grainy" and also some light fruity (unripe apricot?)
    • Finish
      81 81
      Medium long, slightly scratchy, spicy, herbaceous, bitter orange

    • Nose
      Bourbon!
    • Taste
      Vanille bourbon en appel. De Jack Daniels invloed is duidelijk te proeven, en dat doet deze whisky goed.

  6. Achany scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    sweetness, candy, marsh mellows. honey and vanilla. the sweetness of this Malt is just incredible. but it is also overwhelming. not too much complexity in this one for me. the sweetness fades away a bit too quickley. but still a really exceptional dram! the casks do show their influence quite impressivly.
