  1. karloff scored this whisky 87 points Specialist

    I have had this whiskey before but it was a long time ago and if my memory serves me right I loved it. Almonds and blood orange, apple skins, honey and golden syrup on the nose.
    47% can't argue with that , sweet corn and just a little spice with plenty of Oak and orange peel.
    Nice medium finish with some dried fruit on the death.
    This was a sample courtesy of lincolnimp. The quality is still there as well as the price but I have no idea where they get some of these prices shown below. Fantasy Island? Hey Boss the bourbon, the bourbon.

    The nose is quite earthy, musty & dirty, you know there is a little fruit in the background but it is being held back by everything else.
    Nice mouthfeel on the palate, really spicy and bags of flavour with finally some sweetness.
    Reasonable length on the finish with that metallic edge that I find in many bourbons.
    The palate is much better than the nose suggested.
    Nice finish also, I can`t believe it, my second nice bourbon tonight, they do exist after all :)

    I can imagine that the finish in particular shares the tastes. Those who like it especially like it and those who don't like it, it finally pissed off here. Thumbs up from me.
    • Nose
      Strong like oak and vanilla. A little later sweet tones appear, but somehow not fruity at all. Doesn't smell like 47% at all.
    • Taste
      Doesn't taste like 47% either. It is quite spicy, but in terms of alcoholic strength I would almost classify it as "mild". In addition, lots of oak and little else. But all of this is very voluminous and a bit sweet. Pure bourbon!
    • Finish
      It remains a pleasant woody, but not bitter, tone that coats the tongue and the entire mouth. All of that plus nice notes of vanilla.

  7. Lorion scored this whisky 72 points Expert Senior

    Spicy bourbon. A little too much for my taste and a little more.
    • Nose
      Spicy caramel with lots of vanilla and oak.
    • Taste
      Seasoning, seasoning and more seasoning! Add caramel and vanilla. The oak flavor is dominant. Quite sweet too.
    • Finish
      Long and spicy.

  10. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Very round, delicious thing for a reasonable price, I'm all the more curious about the hyped Barrelproof.
    • Nose
      Dark caramel, sweet malt, honey, milk chocolate, a little tea, pepper
    • Taste
      Cotton candy, then full alcohol, dark malt, dark caramel again, burnt brown sugar, mahogany honey, slight hay seeds, a little glue
    • Finish
      Very round, caramel, honey, strong, medium-long
