  1. Malthead19 scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    - significantly stronger and more oak than in the standard 12 y.
    - good to drink, but would have tasted better
    Bourbon expected
    • Nose
      clear, strong honey-sweetness, vanilla, first impression one appreciates a higher percentage
    • Taste
      sweet and malty, vanilla, but significantly more oak than in the smell, oak / wood aroma more pronounced than the sweetness from the bourbon barrels, candied sugar, popcorn
    • Finish
      short, uncomplicated finish;
      short flat finish with a little oak

  2. Svjatogor scored this whisky 65 points Expert Senior

    t: oak, spicy
    a: black pepper, oak, dry

    From start to finish clear effect of 1st fill barrels. For me, absolutely exaggerated, if not non-drinking. To evaluate her blindly, I most likely guess some cheaper, uninteresting bourbon, not Scotch whisky. (Evaluated based on sample.)
    • Nose
      Distinctive bourbon and perfume.
    • Taste
      Vanilla, bourbon, spiciness.
    • Finish
      Finishing is woody and still feels like bourbon.
