    probably the first bourbon I have ever tasted, can't really say much, it doesn't bother me, wouldn't mind drinking it again, but not like I would buy a bottle to keep

  3. craide scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    Simple and for me quite one-dimensional whiskey. Not really much variety and the transition between nose, palate and finish does not seem smooth and round to me. In addition, the alcoholic note that always comes up bothers me.
    It doesn't really suit my taste.
    • Nose
      78 78
      First fresh wood, slightly fruity like oranges, but the fruit note becomes a little more intense over time. Cherries are added. There is also a light honeyed sweetness with herbs, looks a bit dusty like old furniture, somehow soapy,
    • Taste
      77 77
      Soft, creamy mouthfeel, slightly fruity, rather sweet, syrupy sweetness,
      Wood, slightly chocolate, spicy with a little cinnamon.
    • Finish

    • Nose
      H Integral, initially closed. Just sawn board, vanilla, sawdust, new leather furniture, very delicate notes of the carpentry workshop, a hint of marinade, cherry jam, an apple, almonds, fruit drops, dried condensed milk. Over time, something like rotten fruit is added. 22
    • Taste
      In Moderate, moderately dry. Oak tannins, black pepper, cherry, apple bone, overripe apricot, perfume motifs, a little salt. 21
    • Finish
      F Average in length, smoothly fading, tannic, with unexpectedly added alcoholic bitterness, which noticeably spoils the picture. 20
      Zadublenny, calm, soft, you can even say, "sleek" bourbon, although the finish let down. A note of rotted fruit in flavor, for me, gives spice, although someone may scare. Balance 21.

  6. irrerelevant scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    very different, gentle, lightweight

    compared to FR SB:

    thinner, more oak, milder, appeares older, bit more alcoholic
    • Nose
      cherry, red pepper, toasted breadt, combination of mellow wheat and some spicy rye, very oily, cereals, just a hint of alcohol, maple sirup, sweet cream caramel, fudge, touch of soy sauce and nutmeg
    • Taste
      soft and oily mouthfeel, mint, buttered croissants, maple syrup, wheaty, rye spiciness, sour cherries, burnt caramel, meditonsin, very gentle, nothing pops out or dominates
    • Finish
      quite long, deep, lot of wheat, caramel, a lot of light oak

    Balance: (23/25) For how flavor packed the taste and finish is the aroma just falls flat.
    • Nose
      ( 21/25)  Light in aroma, but hints of oak, and apples.  There is also a nice bit of cinnamon and sugar toast.  It really only loses points in how light the aroma is.
    • Taste
      ( 25/25) Wooo Weee.  An abundance of apples, all types, but fair bit of granny smith too.  Very sweet, some maple syrup, along with a fair bit of cinnamon and nutmeg.  Some subtle hints of other fruits too, like cherries, peaches and pears.  Possibly the best tasting bourbon I have ever tried.
    • Finish
      ( 23/25) Lingering spices, with a nice touch of heavily spiced apple cider, also a touch of mandarin oranges, but still a good bit of cinnamon.
