  4. Helgo scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    One of the better and more balanced Bourbons with complexity and age of 12 years. Very good PLV and optimal drinking strength.

    Especially in the aroma of good - barrel influence is known, very rounded, a lot of vanilla, caramel, wood, dried fruit, spiciness and surprisingly the scent of the stable. The taste adds a little disturbing element of bourbon citrus acid, which fortunately does not overwhelm everything else, but it still impresses slightly. In the mid-long reverberation, fortunately, besides this citrus flavor, there is a bit of rye spiciness that improves the resulting impression. Personally, I would be happy in the final as a not too big fan of bourbon. Unfortunately, at the moment, the question of how long it will be done is no longer produced.

  7. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Great independent Bourbon with neat wood influence for a cheap 30 €, is one of my favorite and lets guess what is still possible at a higher age.
    • Nose
      brown sugar, caramel, cinnamon, dark chocolate, dry sawdust, light mint
    • Taste
      Strong, full-bodied, little sweetness, rather bitter-tart, burned-on sugar, roasted almonds, leather, tobacco, cloves, pepper
    • Finish
      long, dark chocolate, burnt, pepper, tobacco

  9. zinaf scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Not my bourbon as it is overly sweet
    • Nose
      Very, very sweet. candied fruits all over, vanilla, toffee, coconut, then comes the oakness but it is layered behind and does not overpower. 
      scented pipe tobacco
    • Taste
      Sweet then very spicy, herbal. Some herbal liqueur based on gin. Sugar cane sweetness.
    • Finish
      Medium to short. sweet and some cinnamon buns.
