- This was high on my wish list and it was a nice surprise. the Alcohol volume was just right to enjoy straight or with water whenever the mood takes you. This is top draw bourbon and a one that I will be revisiting in the future.
- My wife bought me this for Christmas and another off the wish list. Very nice indeed.
Straight away is the vanilla on the Oak, reminds me of those sherbet lollypops I used to get as a kid. New leather and caramel surround that strong mix of spices.
This is full bodied and again sometimes I would drink it neat and sometimes I would add a little water. Both very enjoyable. Nice taste of Chocolate orange and liquorice stick.
This has a long and very creamy finish.
- sample from a friend
A little varnish at the forefront, but slight. Caramel, syrup. lots of
candy corn (really seems to hit the mark as a descriptor, if I do say
so). Some orange extract, chocolate, and wood. Vanilla, too. Sugarcane,
coconut, and rock candy. The alcohol always sticks out a bit and stays
just ahead of the game. Buttery and candied cream corn.
All over the place, really. There is caramel. Strong corn, candy corn,
and syrup sweetness in a brash attack, and then the alcohol comes apart
with the wood. Tough to keep track of the development, but you are left
with a sugary syrup and oily candy corn residue. Not bad.
Some wood, vanilla, maple syrup, candy corn, and rock candy. No
surprises here. It seems denser and darker to me than some of the older
PVWs, but it just doesn't come together. I can tell that there are
things in there that I like and could really like, but it just doesn't
get there for me.
- nice whiskey, not for the novice for sure. coming in at cask strength , on the second taste with couplle drops of water it really opens up nicely. Wonderful finish to boot
- N: raisins, very spicy (curry), chocolate, caramel, floral and aniseed
T: sharp spicy, corn, honey, some bitter orange and cognac
F: sugar, tea, mushrooms and lemon
