    Inexpensive bourbon - good beginner - interesting, intense, has its own character and is not "soft-washed"!
    [Color] full gold;
    • Nose
      soft, subtle, sweet (syrup, sugar, vanilla), toast, charred wood;
    • Taste
      soft, warming, slightly alcoholic, sugar, syrup, corn, caramel, vanilla, wood, tobacco, somewhat bitter;
    • Finish
      short, rough, alcoholic burning;

    Joa, since the slightly more expensive ones by Evan Williams are so popular as PLV Kracher I wanted to start at the bottom, that was nothing. : D
    • Nose
      Already quite sprittig / adhesive, vanilla, honey, toffee, the most typical halt, apricot, cheap leather
    • Taste
      Glue, caramel, honey, nail polish remover, quite alcoholic, vanilla, some toffee and some herbs, as well as fresh wood
    • Finish
      Short, young, honey, youngest oak and ethanol

    Nose:-
    Lovely honey and vanilla. Gentle and cheerful characters with touch of
    fresh pine and old book. Underlay trace of rubber the only set back,
    but an acceptable flaw.


    Palate:- Good medium weight on palate, complementing well with the easy and direct
    flavours. Pronounce taste of sweet fig and cirtric tangerine.

    Finish:- Medium length, lightly spice hot with liquorice mint after taste.

    Simple and good value. A delightful dram on a hot day.
    — at The Whiskey Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

    At best I would drink it with ice cream. But rather something to mix.
    • Nose
      Sweet, after brown sugar. Charcoal oak, vanilla, fruity fresh with some citrus.
    • Taste
      A middleweight with pleasing structure. Smoky-rough oak, vanilla, sweet fruits, leather, caramel and pepper.
    • Finish
      Sprittig with pepper, menthol and bitterness.

    Time
    improves this whiskey significantly. Leave half-fool bottle for at least few
    months and you will get totally different experience.  Notes taken after 6-7 months from the moment bottle
    was open.
    • Nose
      rich,
      vanilla, some oak spices, quality yeast, luscious and rounded
    • Taste
      vanilla,
      honey, a touch of glue (yeah, it’s still young bourbon), some bitter heavy
      charred oak
    • Finish
      short,
      vanilla and some spices, dark bitter-sour chocolate

    For the money it is a pretty good Whiskey. I would prefer it with a bit more water than I normal use, or a couple cubes of ice. 75/100
    • Nose
      A little harsh, sweet syrup and corn
    • Taste
      Not too bad, needs some water or ice and let the ice melt and drink warm up. Notes of oak, syrup vanilla and marsupan. 
    • Finish
      Fairly quick, leaves a linger of vanilla and slight bit of cinnamon.

  10. granella2003 scored this whisky 70 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Aromas of caramel, cola and cinnamon which are accompanied by a rich aroma of oak and one pinch of mint and hay
    • Taste
      Corn, cola, vanilla and cherry syrup with cinnamon and again the rich flavor of oak.
    • Finish
      A long and sweet aftertaste of caramel complemented by a soft fruity and oak
