  2. SimondeVette scored this whisky 83 points Member Senior

    An excellent, drinkable bourbon. Not too heavy; sweet and exciting enough
    • Nose
      New oak, honey, vanilla, banana cake
    • Taste
      White pepper, apple butter, a bit of banana, the sweetness of maize
    • Finish
      Doesn't stick, but drifts slowly on the tongue, especially the pepper. Also a bit of vanilla and sweetness

  3. DannyDram scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Caramel, cinnamon, vanilla ginger, pome fruit, roasted oak, spicy. Balanced, medium body, warming, good medium intensity, somewhat dry and very little astringent. Unspectacular, free of finesse, and a bit tasty.

    Very spicy and typical Bourbon, pretty drinkable

    Tasted a sample before but was much better this time
    • Nose
      86 86
      Liquorice, cinnamon, vanilla, hints of charred oak, whiffs of smoke, little fruitiness, apricot, orange peel
    • Taste
      85 85
      Little punchy, vanilla, more charred oak, spicy, more liquorice, cinnamon, and some ripe orange fruits
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium long, warm, even more liquorice, little smoky

    Waxy orange marmalade with creamy cookies, oily caramel, varnish and black pepper.

  8. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Nose: caramel, oak, light acidity, refreshing, fruity. Spices. Nutmeg, cloves, tamarind.
    Mouth: strong, a nice sweetness combined with strong oak, popcorn. Departure: long, soft custard, oak, and subtle, slightly sour fruit notes. A really good bourbon.

  9. Moses scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Luckily he was my first bourbon, because I like him right away. Had my doubts but I'm glad to have bought. Price performance of the hammer.

      Vanilla, light cinnamon note, sour and yet sweetish, A-oak, clear bourbon note, nutty and almost complex, with this age surprising notes.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Now, in short, the bourbon effect I do not like, but then clear sweetness, even sour with spiciness, thought: car polish, it remains a delicate herbal note. OK.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium long round finish, some oak and therefore also spicy, sweet and sour at the same time, noticeable herbs on the finish. Slightly nutty and warming.

  10. Andytka3 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    N- Initial spicy oak and mellow phenol that evolved to sweet clotted cream and warm pudding, appeared delicious with whiff of spiced orange reduction. Although wee shy and restraint on aroma, but showing good depth with elegant and refinement, and is nice that it is not as oaky and charred as some others.

    P- Velvety and balanced texture with good proportionate flavours of smokey wood, orange peel and passion fruit.  Well matured that throw the usual hints of white oak out of window.F- Medium-long, smooth, chocolate bar with little dried fruits bites. Blooming and ripe with amicable roundness with tinge of fine spicy dry coat with spicy honey undertones.

    — at The Whiskey Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
