    Daddy Rack 40%.

    If ever a whisky name could sound unequivocally American, here you go.

    3cl sample, Aug 2022.

    Bordering dark golden and light amber.

    Aroma has corny spirit, spiritous vanilla, sweet wafers, Tunnock’s caramel wafer. Quite a lot of spirit character - you really get the maize coming through. A touch of papery oak. Hint of dried apple. Interesting.

    Body is quite good, rounded, oily, almost like it has a little thickener in it.

    Taste is vanilla and papery oak, wafers again, no spike to it but a bit salty, waxy and simple on the linger, like it thins out just to ethanol. Not a bad flavour to it, but quite alcohol-led.

    It seems like the makers of this whisky have done a good job here, as though the result is a bit better than the sum of its parts. I’m not saying it’s great, because it’s not, but I get the strong impression that it could have been a lot worse if someone, or a group of people, hadn't exercised some skill and judgement in putting this together.

    Fine by itself, probably tastes good with mixers. At £35 you can definitely do much better. 3.3/79

    I never knew a Tennessee whisky has to go through charcoal twice and find JD a bit sweet and sickly - this is a decent effort, launched in Scotland. Quaff it neat with young friends.

      Not cloyingly sweet on the nose, some spice comes through.

      Passed twice through charcoal (which seems to have little impact on the taste), smooth and gentle were my main impressions - not overly sweet.

      Short and clean.

    Surprisingly, the 10% rye makes it's presence felt on the palate. A few drops of water and the rye takes a backseat, forming a nice base to carry the toffee and sweet popcorn flavours. The finish is buttery and lingering. Nice.
