    This isn't as good as the last batch I had all those years ago. Looking back at my records it was a 2% lower than this one. Sometimes this works in it's favour sometimes not. Saying that this is still a great bourbon and I have enjoyed it and will revisit another bottle in a few more years.
    • Nose
      90 90
      This is a nice bourbon nose of banana cake, vanilla, elder flower, cream and butter on a scone and lots of it. One of those small apple pies with lots of sugar.
      This nose is absolutely wonderful, I could sniff it all day.
    • Taste
      88 88
      A strong creamy mouthfeel to start off with then the 56.4% hits home and it's palatable, don't see any need for water. Those fruity notes of apple and banana are joined by orange and lots of spice. There is also some bitterness which I don't remember in the last bottle I had all those years ago. Sometimes the bitterness works well at times but with this it just spoils it slightly.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The bitterness I talked about in the taste now mixes with the spices to leave a hot finish with custard and apple crumble on the death.

    • Nose
      Vanilla and especially oak very marked. It stays a little closed
    • Taste
      Velvety, fleshy, superb texture. Aromatically, it's more classic, but very pleasant, fragrant and dominated by oak.
    • Finish
      Varied spices, very nice development that brings a beautiful dryness, very long.

      Enthusiasm
      Nose 3/5
      Mouth & Finale 4/5

    Quite possibly the best Bourbon available at under 40 EUR.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Straight:
      floral, mint, alcohol, oranges, spicy, oak, corn

      with water:
      vanilla, coconut, toffee, leather
    • Taste
      90 90
      Straight:

      with water:
      coconut, caramel, nutmeg, cinnamon, spicy
    • Finish
      95 95
      long, full-bodied and surprisingly smooth for a 54%-er.

  8. domani scored this whisky 73 points Expert Senior

    An interesting, powerful bourbon. The nose provides a little surprise effect and is exceptionally aromatic. In the aroma, it looks a bit watered down, the fruit component outweighs a little bit but remains here without significant impetus. He is different, you can try it but I would not put it to me - 07.09.2018
    • Nose
      The first impression is quite mild without the classic bourbon notes. Blind my first thought would probably be somewhere with brandy and not Bourbon. After a while, it reveals itself and you will find cherry, dark chocolate, herbs, some caramel, artificial vanilla, Muh-Muh cream, fresh tobacco, solvents
    • Taste
      Slightly sour, watery texture, black pepper, block chocolate, bitterness, blood orange, physalis, sage
    • Finish
      medium

    • Nose
      Sweet, vanilla, corn, something parfumerous too, as if I'm walking through the Ici Paris ... Tantalizing alcohol.
    • Taste
      Slightly tingling, sweet, vanilla, full, creamy mouthfeel. Honey, caramel
    • Finish
      Slightly tingling, sweet, honey, vanilla. Long finish, also some wood tones now.

  16. BeatF scored this whisky 85 points Photo Moderator

    The enjoyment begins with the American-style noble designed bottle and the full cork. And the rather tight bottleneck> because the producer does not want - as some other competitors - help with a giant maw to increased consumption. This wonderful drop does not really need such transparent artifacts!
    • Nose
      Crunchy golden corn, slightly smoky, vanilla and especially caramel, elegantly slightly sour
    • Taste
      strong spiciness, on the tongue sugar cane molasses
    • Finish
      Citrus fruits (for example, clear grapefruit), a slight hint of tin in addition to the fine wood, caramel, raspberry sweets, a noble bitterness prevails.

  17. wisekyofcourse scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    On the nose, oaky, vanilla and caramel clash, then fruits and almonds!
    2nd:
    caramel, toasted wood, vanilla, menthol freshness, wet wood, fruit as on a blend.

  19. irrerelevant scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    nice aromatic orange notes, the fruitiest bourbon i've encountered, not "big and bold", not a lot of oak, could be a bit "thicker", but its pleasently sweet and fruity. Can easily be sipped neat, great barrel proof bourbon to start with. 

    Time to breathe helps to avoid that paint thinner. The aroma is definitely the winner. I recommend a small glass to pronounce those fruity notes.
    • Nose
      without water: intense paint thinner and sawdust -> with a little water: gets cloudy, soft, harmonic, fat ripe sweet oranges! lot of vanilla, light caramel, reminds of after eight, allspice, oak is in the background

      Edit: Now that the bottle is open for quite a while, you dont need water anymore, no trace of paint thinner or sawdust, more of those juicy oranges.
    • Taste
      (with water) fruity, sweet and quite dry, thin body, pepper, licorice, orange zests, freshly sawn oak, turns a little sour, clove, a little anise, not overly complex
    • Finish
      medium, there is some oak, very dry, oranges, nice vanlla again

  24. Archer scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A beautiful bourbon! The Solvent note, which is so common in Bourbon, is almost entirely absent here.
    • Nose
      Strong corn sweetness, tart spices, vanilla, caramel, young oak - a nice nose, hardly any solvents.
    • Taste
      In the beginning, as expected, initially strong, but not too strong. Also undiluted are beautiful flavors of leather, caramel, cornbread and tart spices. It immediately shows a pleasant creamy mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      Long and sweet, towards the end of the strong spices come to light again.
