  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A smooth bourbon.
    • Nose
      Vanilla and anise. Sweet barley. Dark chocolate. Some shoe polishat the end.
    • Taste
      Spicy kicks of pepper and nutmeg. Oily. Later on mellow and round oak. Stewed fruits.
    • Finish
      Quite dry. Becomes bitter and oaky.

    This is a natural, smooth transition to more demanding whisk (e) y. Lots of vanilla (fresh oak casks, what do you want) with sweet aromas and the scent of corn. Crisp, dry and sweet in taste with a pleasant bitterness. No, not dirty. Even if it is bourbon. The scent is classic corn sweet. That is not yet a word but with this I enter it. I think Bourbon has little to do with whiskey, if I'm honest. This does not mean that Bourbon is not tasty - it proves this. Tasty, sweet, honey, vanilla, tobacco, sharp edge like when you got a piercing shag in your mouth - in the past, when I was still smoking, then. Excellent drink. And a final farewell to the comparison of SM with American whiskey, in particular the Bourbon.

  8. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    All the markers of the bourbon that we love are there, no more, no less. He does the job: in the mess: caramel, woody, solvent, spices.

    Enthusiasm 3/5

  9. Ivynor scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Interesting profile although the final is really short. Bourbon slightly above average
    • Nose
      Varnish, wood, caramel. Creamy print. Vanilla, dried fruit, praline.
    • Taste
      Wood, vanilla, praline. Slightly creamy. End of the mouth a little more on the bitterness of the wood
    • Finish
      Short, too short. vanilla
