  1. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: Reminiscent of rhum agricole, no? 
    T: Creamed corn to taste.
    F: ,….
    C: Taste and smell-wise, it comes across more like rhum agricole than whiskey [at this moment in time], which may mean a barrier to entry for the hardened malt heads. Having said that, well done them for making it to one of the best whiskey shows on the planet – given the C-ituation. Work in progress for sure.

    [No score].

    A real revelation - I was expecting it to be awful, but it is a clean tasting spirit that sits well with other expressions such as Balcones Baby Blue at a price that it would be rude not too.

      Unsalted popcorn with a spirit that behaves itself well.

      Clean tasting corn whiskey, with a slight spice (akin to a rye), very easy to drink
    • Finish
      82 82
      A medium finish - no bitter aftertaste.

    Reminds aloe on both smell and taste, very interesting whiskey.

    The first Mexican whiskey. It is corn whiskey (100%) and such aromas are also found in it. In addition to the sweeter, vanilla aromas characteristic of bourbons, we also find here specific aromas reminiscent of canned corn.
