  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Blind sample. My guess was Four Roses, 10-12 years old.

    A strong oak presence, cherries, charred oak, vanilla. Pecans, brown sugar. Simple profile, but pleasant. I like the profile when it comes to bourbon.

  2. EvilAFI scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Unique, very well blended. The nutty fruity blend with caramel, spices, oak and touch of sherry/wine is a winner for its price for me. Only fault is a bit thin mouthfeel
    • Nose
      Caramel, spice, red fruits ( cherry & strawberry), nice sweetness
    • Taste
      Sweet oak, nutty (a good one ie almond, light peanut), light and floral
    • Finish
      Oak dryness, spices, touch of wine here, again the fruits are bold here

  3. Igor_Gudimov scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Overall it’s sweet and a tad spicy with a strong oak profile supporting the whiskey from start to finish. As the Legent Bourbon Whiskey opens it gets deeper and more interesting with more fruity and rustic notes blossoming. Not a heavy whiskey, but a balanced and fruity bourbonish whiskey. Wouldn’t be my go-to for sipping, but I can easily see its place on a bar shelf, in cocktails or the glass of someone who has a bit of a sweet tooth.
