  1. MaltMartyr scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Honey, ginger ale, definitely from a bourbon barrel. I tend to prefer it at cask strength, but food may have a questionable impact on the oak & spice notes.
    • Nose
      86 86
      crisp lemon citrus, fresh non-yeasty sugar cookie, ethanolic, non-ripe peach like, honey bees wax begins to flow; add water to open up honeydew melon notes.
    • Taste
      86 86
      honey, peach; water may bring on slight bitter spice
    • Finish
      87 87
      effervescent stonefruit bourbon oak finish. Water brings seems to encourage a longer finish for some reason. Some Grapefruit rind, Campari like. If you like bitters, you may appreciate it

  3. Ganga scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Received this as a sample.

    Nose: It starts off just young and hot but with time in the glass this evolves. Notes of polished wood, lemon spritz, dough, paraffin, hints of almond shells.

    Palate: waxy, hot, lemon, fresh oak, collage of dried spices dancing in the background.

    Finish: hot, lots of lemon shavings, astringent oak

    This is good but hot. Not adding water tonight but probably deserves some.
