  1. domani scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Comes close to 10-year-old Bulleit but has a penchant for one-dimensionality. The flavors are of course less expressive and the chemical component predominates. Water helps to soften the sharpness somewhat - 07/16/2020

  6. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Part of a line up with 8 different bourbon’s. From basic level to a little more advanced. This one is third in my line up.
    • Nose
      A typical bourbon again. All the usual suspects are there and it doesn’t bring anything new to the table.
    • Taste
      Tannic and peppery. Not something I like.
    • Finish
      Surprisingly short. Again with the usual suspects.

      If you like your bourbon to be average Joe, this is the one to go for.

    Very accessible, easy to drink. Quite sublime. Would definitely re-buy this.

  15. KayMeertens scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Placed this one on my wishlist, an enjoyable dram for a small price.
    • Nose
      Chai tea, raspberry, strawberry, apple, banana and a little dough or clay.
    • Taste
      Again that spiciness of chai tea. Raspberry, vanilla and banana.
    • Finish
      More banana. A little woodiness, not too much.

  16. Spiceweasel scored this whisky 71 points Expert Junior

    Looks perfumed and the extreme woody notes of bourbon whiskey is too much for me

    Diluted, it loses a bit of sharpness and is much more pleasant.

  18. Sandman scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    A nice bourbon, not too complex. Drink away easily, great for a relaxed evening with friends or for the TV.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, sweet corn, lemon, toffee and flowers.
    • Taste
      Gummy bears (haribo), toffee, little oak, cereals, corn, dried fruit and herbs (cinnamon?)
    • Finish
      Medium, sweet, flowers and warming herbs.

  19. Mr.Sandwich did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Very full and mild. Honey, toasted oak and cereal notes.
    • Taste
      Very strong and robust with rye and spicy oak. Followed by honey, a little vanilla and rather less sweetness. This Bulleit looks sharp, a few drops of water are good for him.
    • Finish
      For its 45%, the finish is surprisingly light and slightly dry. The medium-long finish is also slightly smoky.
