  1. Koning scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Very nice bourbon, offers a nice array of flavours to explore.
    • Nose
      Sweet with vanilla, raspberry, apple syrup, caramel and coconut. Dark chocolate and a trace of smoke give it depth.
    • Taste
      Sweetness (vanilla, nutella, raspberry) is balanced with fresh and sour citrus fruits, savoury soy sauce and a slight bitterness.
    • Finish
      Nutmeg, cinnamon, lemons, sweetness (vanilla, raspberry). Beyond that is a bit bitter again, it's like very dark chocolate, bit also chicory.

    • Finish
      very very long,

  3. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Very nice, rich in flavor Bourbon, which leaves as much in the mouth as in the nose, knows how to please! One of the very few <50% Bourbons that I like.
    • Nose
      Wow, what a horny independent nose, full of orange peel, apple, garkein glue, strong-fruity / spicy, light eucalyptus note, licorice, rose scent, has something of refreshing detergent / room fragrance
    • Taste
      Strong spicy, but just on the border to the alcoholic burning, then beautiful orange peel, cedar wood, fennel, tobacco, eucalyptus, vanilla, cinnamon, oak with nutmeg
    • Finish
      Nice strong, warm finish, orange peel, nutmeg and eucalyptus remain, medium to long

  4. CaskHead scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Nice nose -  but doesn`t keep the promise on the palate.

    Slightly bitter oak in the finish ...
