  1. holborndrinker scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    1 recharred hogshead & 2 refill bourbon made for the export market.

    The DNA is present, but dialled down slightly - smooth.
    • Nose
      86 86
      You can smell it as soon as you pour it - ash notes.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Very smooth - almost watery mouthfeel. Meaty, slightly understated.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Lingers for a long time.
