  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    This whiskey needs time to discover all its spicy flavours. Sample from my American friend Dave. His McKenna (bottled in bond) was botteld in 1990.
    • Nose
      Lots of rye spiciness for a start. Fresh pencil shavings. Some grasiness as well. Later more on strawberries and cherries. Salted peanuts. Soapy notes. Pine at the background.
    • Taste
      Fierce explosive notes of corn and spicy oak. Clove and nutmeg. Followed by cooked apples and baked bananas. Barley Sugar. Toasted almonds. Dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      Medium long. A little salt and black pepper. Liquorice. Becomes quite bittery. Spearmint at the end.

    A very good example of how excellent a standard flavor profile bourbon (i.e cinnamon, cherry cola, vanilla etc) can be! (barrel #965)
