  1. MarcinCh scored this whisky 74 points Connoisseur

    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.

    Funny to taste once, but I will skip a second dram for sure. Quite uninteresting spiritsy with a very small flavour profile that's low in intensity as well.
    • Nose
      60 60
      Quite alcoholic (spiritsy) with buttered corn and some vanilla notes
    • Taste
      63 63
      Watery thin and low in both flavour intensity and richness. There is however a bit of vanilla and wood shavings if you dig into it
    • Finish
      58 58
      Short and empty.

  7. MaltMartin scored this whisky 62 points Connoisseur

    Not good. Not worth to write a tasting note about.

  8. Wolfe Tone scored this whisky 73 points Expert Senior

    Meaty and fruity, with rusty iron.

    An unexpectedly good whiskey. Just different than others.
    • Nose

      Canned corn, corn in alcohol, followed by chocolate and honey

  11. Martin Schmidt scored this whisky 50 points Expert Senior

    Just disgusting

  12. Powerurs scored this whisky 60 points Expert Senior

    This has nothing to do with whiskey.
    Tastes like a very, very bad Obstler.

  13. Nazin scored this whisky 20 points Expert Senior

    This is extremly bad and absolutely disgusting.
    N: vanilla, sweetness, moonshine, reminds me of Serbian Rakijas
    T: sweet, monshine, alcohol
    F: sweet, alcohol

    Should not be named 'whiskey'…

  15. Vandaahl scored this whisky 68 points Expert Junior

    the nose is not bad, but there is actually little taste to it. in our region this only applies under the motto: there is alcohol in it after all...

  16. jphoiting scored this whisky 69 points Member Senior

    This just is not worth it. Not whiskey more like tequila/mezcal. The bad thing is that there is much better mezcal.

  17. dutchdrammer scored this whisky 65 points Expert Senior

    hardly drinkable

  18. 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].

  19. holborndrinker scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    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.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Unsalted popcorn with a spirit that behaves itself well.
    • Taste
      84 84
      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.
