    Sue If Porosis Singbae tastes like flower + cherry, this one has a weak cherry flavor and is nutty
    The vanilla flavor is not as strong as expected
    After a while, the cherry flavor bursts and the nutty taste is slightly diminished.
    It would have the same alcohol content as Watuck, but I thought it was a much less stimulating and comfortable bourbon.

  4. Whisky Hamster scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Successful re-launch of the age statment. Compared to the old 9 yo from 2017(?) this one's less spirity and the rye is more prominent both on the nose and the tongue.

  5. Igor_Gudimov scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    This finish is also lacking compared to Small Batch but overall - great sweet, nutty, vanilla-honey, oaky, balanced bourbon. For Fridays
    Update: on second try finish is much better
