    [October, 2015]  Finally I emptied a bottle that I bought for 24,50 Euro in March, 2015.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 82,5.  My notes state "this tastes not like a Scotch, this is a Bourbon Whisk(e)y".

  6. dicembre29 scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Too young. Slightly feinty. Crème brulee. White bread. Cinnamon. Ginger. Pepper and dust. A little bit of orange and lemon. Oaky, yes…but clean cereals too. Both creamy and tangy. So many pleasant notes, but they haven’t had quite enough time to fully realize. Throw this whisky in a refill hoggy for a few more years and I imagine we’d get something special.

    Palate: A lot of cereal and woody notes. Very young-ish and spirit-y. Peppery and still kinda bite-y. Some grassy notes coming through. More vanilla. Soft pudding (tapioca? vanilla?). Pleasant enough really. Not there yet, but you can definitely see quality inherent in this one.

    Thoughts: Like an under-ripe banana, this one wasn’t quite ready to be picked yet. Not nearly as bourbon-esque as I’d feared either, which is a good thing.
