  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    An oaky nose that mixes with sherry and a little peat at first, hints of sulphur but it is ok, plum and a little banana.
    The palate is quite fat and full of toffee but then pecan pie and maple syrup so while this is called , signature bourbon tastes (is this a bourbon per se or American whiskey).
    More toffee and caramel come in and it is far too sweet for me.
    I tasted this with a few drops of water.

    Even when pouring the Rumfinish impressively noticeable. I also like the caramelised sugar enriched with vanilla and the bewitchingly sweet mix of tropical fruits, especially the sweet coconut note. What else can I say, except that I had a great bourbon in my glass again. I like it very much!

    • Nose
      Bright and clear, the Lawrenceburg radiates from the premium snifter while many small and oily drops separate from the streaks sticking to the glass wall. Even when pouring sweetness flows through the room, sugar and vanilla mix with sticky caramel. Candied fruits exude their beguiling aroma. Apricots, pineapple and mango sting from a tropical fruit mix, coconut and juicy lychee are getting more and more to their advantage. Slowly my salivation begins, I want to taste the rum-like whiskey immediately ...
    • Taste
      At the beginning of the first sip, the sweet tropical fruits show themselves impressively again, caramelised sugar and vanilla end in a tart wood note. Slowly, wooden sharpness crawls from behind over the tongue and envelops it with a spicy chili pepper mix. Roasted grated coconut and dark apricots fit perfectly with the dark and partly harsh wood tones, the sharpness gradually increases and heats the tongue neatly. Slowly, the high alcohol content stops and leaves a bitter woody aroma on the tongue.
    • Finish
      Herb and partly bitter lingering. Dark caramel and toffee dissolve from the spicy wood tones, slightly burnt sugar decomposes in the lower jaw and lavishly spills over the tongue. Short old hazelnuts and walnuts show up, a few grains of pepper in combination with woody sharpness produce a pleasantly sharp and spicy aftertaste. The mouthfeel becomes noticeably creamier, butter biscuits dissolve in the saliva. Slowly, really only very slowly, the harsh and sometimes sharp flavors sound and leave a film of butter and white bread on the tongue.

    The initial nose is quite fantastic but it eventually mellows down towards a more "standard" bourbon/american whiskey experience. Taste and finish are pretty light and mellow, but certainly pleasant. The rum barrel is clearly noticable in the nose, concerning taste and finish however I'm having difficulties tracing this back to rum influence. If the term light whiskey applies to anything it's taste and finish.

    Edit: a second dram out of my sample bottle a few weeks later holds itself together much better. One extra point for both nose and taste. The finish by contrast remains just a bit underwhelming.

      Wow, a full on fruit attack. Tropical fruit syrup, passion fruit, mango, peach, coconut, lychees. Also some peanut like nuttiness. Alas, this pure tropical fruitiness dissipates for the most part after some 15 minutes.
      A few drops of water give way to more standard bourbon notes like vanilla, butterscotch/toffee and corn sweetness, though any wood heaviness is absent.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Suprisingly mellow, 53% but no nippy alcohol: vanilla, caramel, toffee, sugar bread and some mild wood spices and pepper. Needs only a few drops of water.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Rather short: loads of vanilla, some caramel and a touch of wood.

    The bourbon and rum aromas harmonize. I like it!
    • Nose
      89 89
      very sweet and aromatic with vanilla, sugar syrup caramel, tropical fruits and a clear rum note
    • Taste
      86 86
      sweet and spicy, candied orange peel, coconut, massive oak spiciness after laurel and dark chocolate with lots of pineapple, mangos, bananas, a hint of eucalyptus and a lot of dark caramel
    • Finish
      86 86
      long, tropical fruits, vanilla and oak remain

  5. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Already interesting. However, the rum finish is already very present. For me it's almost more rum than whiskey. But also does not like rum, so I'm a little bit sensitive. I do not need it again.

  6. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    That glue bit might be repelling to some, but it's got that delicate sweetness that keeps you begging for more. I tasted it blind and thought it was an older single grain. Good bang for your buck!
    • Nose
      87 87
      Candied orange, vanilla sugar, raspberry, apple, glue and rum.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Vanilla sugar, tonic, coconut, plum, banana, yellow raisin, glue and smoke. Water releases some caramel but is not recommendable.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Vanilla sugar, pear, milk chocolate, plum, coconut, hazelnut and caramel.

  7. Norbs scored this whisky 81 points Specialist

    To be clear: This is NOT a bourbon, but (as they call this type in the US) a Light Whiskey. It is distilled at more than 80% (alcohol by volume) which makes it too much of a neutral spirit for my personal likings.
