  1. Saftkenner scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    You can have fun with this even as a Scotch drinker, if you manage to get involved. Nice bourbon.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Lush tart-sweet nose with nice tropical fruit aromas, apart from the glue.
      Spicy oak, umami, vanilla, papaya, mango, orange peel, some glue, passion fruit.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Powerful onset, slightly spicy, sweet, but also very slightly dry. Limes, cane sugar, passion fruit, star fruit, a fine note of glue, overripe mango, oak spice, cardboard, ginger syrup.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium length pleasant finish. Honey, mango, sweetened cornflakes, coconut, passion fruit, glue (little). Still slightly dry at the end.

  2. Captain Teague scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    This is not JD...Very good bourbon from a sctoch drinker's POV... knowing what it is my very first thought smelling it was this could well be a way older Highland scotch ... you can sense the rye influence later on (doesn't mean it's not from Scotland today...borders are breaking)

    N: Lots of fresh oak (no glue!) Mixed w caramel, vanilla, bright tobacco, orange oil, cinnamon...w. water more citral fruit notes... alcohol good integrated for 60%...

    T: Starts sweet caramel, spicy cinnamon, fresh wood..vanilla.. milk chocolate, some Mokka, w..water.orange oil, even some red fruit appears - cherry...a very slight woodsmoke (roasted Aroma)...

    F: dominated by oak...cinnamon, herbs ( camphor), bitter cacao
