  1. Defeatless scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Pretty decent bourbon. Good value for money ratio. This is just a good sipping bourbon.
    • Nose
      81 81
      Classic bourbon nose, not really outspoken, but all is there. There are dark spices, cardamom , vanilla, and a hint of wood.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Pretty decent bourbon. The classic bourbon notes are in there. But I find it a little thin, even for the high strength. Vanilla, fudge and some toffee are in here alongside some dark spices.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium length. The finish I like best of this one. It gives good caramel, decent spices and a touch of wood.

  2. Calmar scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    A good entry-level bourbon, a fairly rich and dense flavor, an elevated fortress here was at hand, the option with a commercial fortress was much weaker. At its very reasonable price, a good candidate for the place of the on duty bourbon at the bar for casual visitors and other similar kinds of occasions
    • Nose
      Raw, open, corn, carpentry workshop, varnish, pickled cucumber, processed hardwood, popcorn.
    • Taste
      Sweet pepper, corn, oak bitterness, oily sweetness, orange peel, a little bit sharp.
    • Finish
      Pepper-ginger on a sweet corn background, oak, young bark, vegetable oil.

  3. Gloin scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    The smell is quite light for a bourbon and surprises with the fresh fruit note, the alcohol is not perceived.

    The freshness loses something in the mouth despite the citrus notes, the taste knows how to please, me better than the smell.

    The finish blends in well without glittering.

    The bourbon is pure drink good, in the whiskey sour he lacks the assertiveness.
    • Nose
      Caramel, oak and vanilla, some citrus, green apple
    • Taste
      medium onset, slightly astringent, oak, some baked apple, little sweetness, some ginger sharpness, distant citrus notes, sweeter in the second sip
    • Finish
      Oak and vanilla, burnt caramel, sweeter in the finish, medium to long

  4. LeChiffre scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Overall, a good bourbon. The intense vanilla and caramel with the distinct spice as the antipole in the mouth are exciting, but unfortunately a bit unbalanced in terms of alcohol and (bitter) dominate barrel notes. PLV but good.
    • Nose
      81 81
      intense vanilla and caramel; very cute; spicy notes of oak; Alcohol noticeable
    • Taste
      82 82
      spicy-sweet; a lot of vanilla and caramel; increasingly comes on tingling oak
    • Finish
      78 78
      very spicy; Oak; behind it vanilla and subtle sweetness; the alcohol shows light burning / pungent; slight bitterness

  5. AdamsB scored this whisky 73 points Expert Senior

    It is worth a try.
    • Nose
      Toffee, oak, vanilla, citrus, caramel, honey,
    • Taste
      Caramel, pepper, cedar tree, honey, oak
    • Finish
      Long finish of a palpable oak

  8. ctu scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Pleasant bourbon at a fair price.
    • Nose
      Honey, vanilla, citruses, mint and spicy oak.
    • Taste
      Powerful. Orange, vanilla, oak, sawdust, chili and ginger.
    • Finish
      Medium length, spicy, bittersweet.

  9. EarlMobile scored this whisky 80 points Expert Junior

    Again, a bourbon, which is not for me. Even if this - for me - after all, belongs to the better.

  10. Wiz scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    For me the best PLV in a bourbon
    • Nose
      Spicy, with vanilla and cane sugar
    • Taste
      Spicy, with caramel, black pepper and a lot of vanilla
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Oak and vanilla remain
