  1. tangtang scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    quite soft rye whiskey which is more on the spicy side
    • Nose
      A spicy start, lots of oak, vanilla, tobacco, with a hint of honey in the background.
    • Taste
      spicy, with a lot of rye and oak, vanilla, caramel and a little honey, slightly orange
    • Finish
      spicy rye notes, some vanilla and caramel. Rather short. The rye is a bit dominant

    Good all-around whiskey. I tried not to figure this into my notes but it's a great bargain.
    • Nose
      A little prickle, pleasant wet pipe tobacco that increases as it warms, some dates, honey with hints of vanilla and nutmeg
    • Taste
      Grass clippings come out and the pipe tobacco increases. Small amount of of sweetness that continues the vanilla and honey nose.
    • Finish
      A little oily at the finish.

  3. markjedi1 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Nice bourbon to drink neat, but it really shines in an Old Fashioned. Thanks for the sample, Pat!
    • Nose
      Honeysweet nose on caramel, tobacco leaves, pecan nuts, multi grain bread, orange peel, raw corn and the very present spiciness of rye.
    • Taste
      The arrival is somewhat watery, but it is nicely fruity and spicy. Nuts return as dos the corn and a big dose of vanilla and cherries. Cinnamon and nutmeg are the loudest spices. The bread from the nose turns into a sugar loaf.
    • Finish
      The finish is short to medium on cherries and orange marmalade.
