  1. checkpointuk scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Colour:
    Sunlight / straw yellow
    Nose:
    Very fruity nose of papaya, mango, lychee, passion fruit, mandarin, lime, peach and apricot. Honeycomb, vanilla, a little cotton candy, flavors of butter and cream, and a slightly salty freshness. An absolute fruit bomb!
    Taste:
    Soft, spicy, fruity and vibrant fresh. Now more with apricot, mango and papaya and a little tart green notes of gooseberry, herbs and wood. Slightly acidic with rhubarb notes - but fitting and very enjoyable!
    Finish:
    Medium long - Still infinitely fruity and honey sweet, without any hue and only a little bit drier. Soft leather, cardboard and towards the end the sweetness jumps up again.
    Comment:
    This is the most fruity way to enjoy whisky!

  2. dRambo scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Nose: vanilla, apples, pears, banana, strong spicy sour oak, green tea with jasmine,
    Taste: sweet and sour bananas, vanilla, slightly syrupy, very clear aromas - looks very noble, oak nectar with barely perceptible alcohol, astringent, spicy oak leaves in minty notes that prickle on the tongue for a long time, fresh and ever-increasing citrus notes, with something chew - green apples
    Conclusion: for me, the prototype of a Bourbon whisky - 16 years, Firstfill, not diluted - simply delicious

  3. Gloin scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Smell : lemon and lime, green apple, malt, vanilla and caramel, oak, the alcohol is noticeable, but does not bother
    Taste : again green apple, a lot of oak, sugared lemon
    Finish : oak, a little bitterness, again malt, reminiscent of a bitter beer (Jever)

    I have a good 87 points. This is a real reference for a bourbon barrel-aged whisky, crisp, oak, lots of citrus fruit and a lot of vanilla and caramel. Straightforward and unfussy: that's how it has to be.

  4. Magnus Hillman scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Good balance, a fantastic dram. 16 years on bourbon barrels can be so delicious.

    (Rating interval 87-91)
    • Nose
      Sweet vanilla, oak, yeast, overripe banana and some more fresh exotic fruit.
    • Taste
      Rich and viscous body, really warm, vanilla, white sugar, warm and melted marshmallows, banana again but more artificial than on the nose, some more exotic fruit it might be mango? Apple as well.
    • Finish
      Long sweet and warming finish with loads of vanilla and warm honey. 

  5. Malt Hans scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Fruity and malty aroma, apple cider, vanilla, ripe banana, nail polish, lime, heather honey and new cut grass. Marzipan sweet taste, horseradish, red chili, cardamom, banana, malt and mint. Medium long, malty and fruity end.

    Well, that's definitely not mine. The whole acidity and the soapy and at the same time bitter impression I do not like.
    • Nose
      Alcohol stings, quince, pepper, malt, chervil, coriander, light smoke, lavender soap, lemon zest, banana, sour wood, sour white wine (I know, no white wine finish)
    • Taste
      tingling, lots of ginger, nutmeg, chervil, cilantro, espresso, yeast, malt, lemon, bitter skin of peels, a lot of banana, quince, grapefruit peel, unripe apple, raspberries, lemon tea, parsley, chervil, minimal smoke, sour-bitter, soapy , Rose flower tea, jasmine tea, a little vanilla, a lot of acidity, crack-and-baked dough unbaked (sour)
    • Finish
      bitter, soapy, ginger, and at the very end green apple (like the shampoo) and very unnatural looking coconut
