  1. tommy12 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Color of dark white wine. Scent: Vanilla, sweetness, no sherry influence, the pre-filling of the barrels with bourbon is very clear, butterscotch, light fruit (not identifiable). Taste (diluted with water to less than 50%): sweetness, intense, typical Bourbon cask aromas, somewhat one-dimensional, mouthcoating, medium-long finish, no off-notes, but nothing special either. I had a sample and there was no way I would buy this bottle. There is so much better.

    Smooth, well balanced, really that much alc.? You drink it and you want more...NAS that expensive? Well I´m thinking about!

    A positive surprise. On the nose a little hot initially as expected, 55% ABV and NAS so young distillates likely included. But there's much more and it all unfolds given time. Water tamed the nose but made it less interesting. Palate, very nice. Does not need water IMHO, big surprise. Oaky, yeah but in a good way. For some reason the oak aroma in particular reminds me a lot of a Glenfarclas 25 bottled circa 2018. Just a little feistier. Not cheap but not bad either.
