  2. lincolnimp scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    The  6cl sample came from a much older 6 year old bottle with a gold tin cap with an internal ring pull.

    The label is older looking and the medals are different, compared to this one

    The 6 year is not listed hence why I put it here but I believe it is from the 1960`s.

    I have not had many bourbon but I believe this is the best I have tried.

    I am no bourbon lover but this older bottle that the sample is from is really nice.
    • Nose
      Vey sweet nose on maple syrup, pecan pie, cinnamon, smoked meats and blueberry
    • Taste
      Spirity, powerful on cream soda, caramel, toffee and wafer.

      Its gets sweeter by the second and there is a little melon in the mix but it is not what I would call fruity.
    • Finish
      Approaching medium
