    Color: mahogany
    Viscosity: medium
    Dram: undiluted

    Conclusion:
    A great bourbon that you should always have in the house. Great price-performance ratio. The slightly higher proportion of rye is noticeable through a wonderful flavor and gives it a nice complexity.

  9. Moritz scored this whisky 79 points Expert Junior

    He does well what he does. PLV is very good, being just over 20 euros per bottle. Simple and good bourbon.
    • Nose
      In my view, no glue (which many do not like at Bourbon). Vanilla, a little caramel and also a bit bitter oak ... all well carried by the alcohol.
    • Taste
      Very, very strong. Vanilla and strong oak, quite sweet and no non-round moments. Strongly supported by alcohol, it stimulates salivation.
    • Finish
      Long and warm, a touch of honey. But sweetness dominates.
