  1. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Joa, I'm just waiting for the more expensive Blanton's, which are supposed to be very good, this one does not cut me off the stool so much, but it's nice and elegant.
    • Nose
      Creme Brulee, much sweeter than many others, very own, orange peel, grapefruit, lots of caramel, Werther's Original, but already clearly adhesive
    • Taste
      Lots of honey, a little hay, orange chocolate, light anise, candy, caramel in the background, but not too strong
    • Finish
      Very warm, sweet-bitter, caramel, short to medium

    I`ve had my eye on this Bourbon for a long time, I`ve done a lot of research on it and nearly every review was positive, plus i liked the look of the bottle, it`s a keeper. Again wasn`t disappointed and i thought the price was on the money considering it`s not easily available. Highly recommend it.

    Another Top draw bourbon which was a treat to myself with some christmas money i had left over.
    • Nose
      Like all bourbons it has that distinctive vanilla nose, this also has a lovely butterscotch aroma with strong chocolate orange.
    • Taste
      Full bodied this has a wonderfull juicy and tangy taste to it and the chocolate orange is strong with a hint of cherry in the back ground.
    • Finish
      A long and mouth watering butterscotch finish.
