  2. vlad78 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    I was surprised that such uncharacteristic tones were born in a Bourbon barrel. So.
    • Nose
      Sweet tones of burnt sugar, caramel, raisins, varnish and a room with a lot of wood, such as drying in a furniture shop. The varnish is not harsh, but rather dry, one might say not industrial, but food grade.
    • Taste
      Sweet, oaky, with apple and some kind of citrus jam, with the addition of butter cake.
    • Finish
      Bright, hot, like a hot cake with dried fruit and maple syrup.

  5. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Solid malt marked by the Bourbon barrel. A mixture of caramel, fudge and wood flavor.
    Can you drink? Absolutely I do not need it again.

  6. Calmar scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Very saturated oak whisky, there is really a lot of oak, I am not a big fan of such a profile, but I must say that such a quantity of wood does not cause rejection, everything is masterfully framed by a touch of sweetness, chocolate, leather and tobacco, the balance is excellent.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, a lot of wood - old furniture, dry boards, cigar box; coffee, nuts, tobacco, leather goods, shoe cream, some dry herbs,
    • Taste
      Saturated, dense, tart oak, sweet creamy notes lost on such a strong background, coffee, tobacco, nuts, leather goods, varnish shades, grain, ginger, dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      Spicy, warming, oak, varnish, tobacco, coffee, a little ginger, dark chocolate.
