  1. WhiskySteen scored this whisky 75 points Member Senior

    Sweet and friendly, slightly bland

  2. Xstream scored this whisky 60 points Expert Senior

    I like this one for a bourbon. Is somewhat floral and fruity which works reasonably well in some cocktails. If you flicker enough, it serves a purpose. I can't recommend drinking that pure. Really in your face oaky, vanilla, fruit and flowers without any balance. I'd rather drink water to be honest.

    I quite enjoyed a dram of it in a bar once... you know pre-pandemic

  4. Highlander65 scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    A very basic bourbon, from the supermarket, but for 10 euros a more than decent drink.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, cream, coconut, a touch of wood. Simple but pleasant
    • Taste
      Still vanilla, cream, coconut, with the addition of a pinch of lemon. Light and pleasantly rubbery body
    • Finish
      Medium-lasting sweet finish

    As their standard bourbon it's actually quite decent and it comes at a very reasonable price. As a bourbon drinker I have rated this as a bourbon and not as a general whiskey if that makes sense.

      Vanilla and lots of Oak. Cinnamon, cooked apples, shoe polish, Choisya Sundance shrub leaves, ginger cake and ripe bananas. A really pleasant nose.
    • Taste

      Just a little heat and spice from the rye is what hits home straight away followed by more vanilla and Oak sweetness. It goes down really easy. There are some caramel notes and toffee apple. The cinnamon also makes another appearance.
    • Finish
      78 78
      A medium finish with just a little bitterness and a bit more spice on the death.
