    I'd be happy to drink this again, any time.

    The nose started off a bit delicate and almost flowery in a perfume kind of way, but given time, paid off quite nicely, opening up to get both richer and sharper.

    The palate gave me more or less what I would want from a decent American whiskey, (with a nice nostalgia bonus) and the tail wrapped it all up together with some unexpected minerality over and enjoyably extended period.

    It was different, but not discordant and that works for me.
    • Nose
      Slightly floral edge to the bourbonesque staples of vanilla, toasted sugar caramel and malted grain, as well as some rich pistachio butter and pine timber.
    • Taste
      Vanilla cream, apricot marmalade Danish, the cherry brandy we stole from the adults while Christmas carolling in the mid 90s, allspice and generous kick of white pepper.
    • Finish
      Chewy toffee, nutmeg, a little menthol tending towards pine. Buttered soda bread. Pepper spice is more of a warm hum now and seems in no hurry to leave.

    Notes taken from my blog:

    It was my first Heaven Hill and didn’t know what to expect, and I’ve not been disappointed. It lacked a wee bit of complexity but both the nose and the palate were pleasant. An easy dram to sip.
    • Nose
      Loads of vanilla, butter and caramel, honey, and a pinch of pepper. Green apples bring a bit of acidity, and maple syrup a sugary side to the nose. With water, vanilla stays on the front, complemented with some malt.
    • Taste
      Sweet and slightly pepperish arrival, with a bit thin mouthfeel. Caramel and oak take the front, soon joined by the green apples and the maple syrup from the nose. Reduction gets the mouthfeel to be creamier, and brings a sugary feeling.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long and warm, with caramel and oak spices.

  3. MaltyMillionaire scored this whisky 72 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Maple, cut wood, vanilla, berries.
    • Taste
      Dry arrival. Maple undertones with cut wood, vanilla, and lots of spice.
    • Finish
      Long finish dominated by oak, spice, and some mild underlying sweetness.
