    Best Bourbon ever. Intense, spicy, a lot of oak, great aromas, definitely neither too mild / weak chesty. Perfect.

    Solid whiskey, I tried it undiluted. I could not find the common solvents found in other bourbons.
    • Nose
      Strong caramel note, vanilla, herbs, pepper, schnapps, dark chocolate, no solvent
    • Taste
      Neat, oak, burnt marshmallows, tobacco, oily
    • Finish
      Long, more sweetness, oak, the vanilla comes back, on the tongue at the second sip significantly drier

  6. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Not really mine, do not understand the "hype".
    • Nose
      Flowers, pepper, nutmeg, nougat, vanilla, solvents
    • Taste
      Strong, orange, a lot of oak, tobacco, vanilla, pepper, apple, very spicy and alcoholic
    • Finish
      Dry, intense, oak, pepper, medium alcoholic

  7. Corso_theRed scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Pleasantly
    surprised by this. Even though this is pretty straight forward and typically “Bourbon”,
    I enjoyed it more than I expected. It is a bargain to boot and quite tasty.
    Will look out for some other WT expressions in the future.
    • Nose
      As
      “Bourbon” as it gets for me. Vanilla, paint thinner, glue, coconut, and a lot
      of wood. Somewhat sour and not as overly pungent, as some other Bourbons I’ve
      had before. Oriental spices, with curcuma and coriander. Chicken broth? Quite
      enjoyable! The gluey notes evaporate fast and we’re left with an infusion of
      oak-soaked chocolate cake and caramelized corn.
    • Taste
      Easy
      to sip, even at this ABV. The initial blasts are what one would expect. Oak,
      caramel, some more oak. What follows is symptomatic banana and the inevitable
      corn sweetness. Mentholated apple cider?
    • Finish
      Medium-long.
      Tannic, some mineral sootiness and vanilla. Bananas aplenty and a tough of
      camomille.

  8. Joschbert scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Finally, a Bourbon, the rudimentary with Scottish single painting can keep up. Complex, intense and surprisingly good drinkable in cask strength. But also tolerates a few drops of water quite well. The typical Bourbon adhesive note is hardly pronounced here.
    • Nose
      Very soft and round, vanilla, oranges, pine resin, honey, oak,
    • Taste
      Sweet, slightly sour, orange juice, milk chocolate, fir honey and bark, a touch of leather
    • Finish
      Warming, caramel, cloves, oak and nuts

  9. blondiehb did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    A typical bourbon.
    • Nose
      Sweetness and solvents and the typical corn flavor of bourbon. The Aklohol numbs the nose
    • Taste
      Britzeln on the tongue tip, sweetness, alcoholic sharpness, corn, heat, fresh wood
    • Finish
      Medium, warm, sweet, solvent notes.

  10. Dalm did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Aroma: very intense, black pepper, then sweet, caramel, vanilla, honey, floral notes, oak, cinnamon
    Taste: Spicy, lemon / orange peel, alcohol is stronger and tingles, oak, coffee, raisins / plums
    Finish: very long, spicy, vanilla, warming, nuts, oak
