  2. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Joa, what kind of drinks, wa '?
    • Nose
      Sweet, brown sugar, some Obdareutungen, apple peel, some mandarin vllt., Vanilla, toffee, also a certain citrus acid, but also the typical adhesive note of cheap bourbons
    • Taste
      Eigtl. the same as in the nose, to quite oily, like melted candy, here's some apricot, but all so sweet and rounded, no edges except the glue
    • Finish
      Pretty short, apple peel, Toffifee, vanilla, citrus

  4. Mephisto scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Excellent price for a "easy-to-drink" whisky. No masterpiece, but not bad! However, the finish is not amazing.

  5. Mephisto scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Sweet and very easy to drink.
    • Nose
      Very sweet: vanilla sugar, candy floss and caramel. A mix of fruits including apple peel and orange. Hints of unskimmed milk, however, slightly sour and dusty (something I always associate with bourbon).
    • Taste
      Brown sugar and some caramel, means as sweet as the nose indicated. Dried fruits with raisins and butter.
      Something creamy, reminds me to drinking chocolate.
    • Finish
      Short with milk chocolate, some hazelnuts, finally bitter and sour.

  6. Andytka3 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    N- Initial doses of pungent peppercorn, plum and vanilla, rounded of with cinnamon, caramel and custard.

    P- Fiery barks, dry orange peel oil smoothened with sweet soursup.

    F- Medium, spicy coating, bitter sweet herbs and burnt caramel.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

    this is just... plain good stuff!

    comparing this to Jack is like compairing fine confectionary to wine gum
    • Nose
      very inviting and pleasent nose, there's caramel and vanilla but not the overly sweet kind, it's fuller and richer. a little fruity and a hint of smoke. something in the background I can't figure out but I find it very nice, suspect it's the rye.
    • Taste
      almost a sherry sweetness, then peppers, not too hot, just right.

      more sweetness of caramell and honey.

      more spice; cinamon apple and very light horseradish
    • Finish
      sweetness stays but it turns a bit dry with mild tobacco

      slightly spiced honey returns and stays quite a while

  9. Dalm did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Aroma: vanilla, oak, cinnamon, glue
    Taste: sweet, vanilla, oak, spice
    Finish: long, dry oak, vanilla, glue

  10. karloff scored this whisky 83 points Specialist

    If you like your bourbons a little lighter and a little sweeter, I highly recommend this one. it also has quite a high Rye content.
