Whisky Reviews for Ancient Age Straight Kentucky Bourbon

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Very light and easy bourbon. Although this was originally sold as bottom shelf whiskey (20-30 euro), there is quite a lot to discover here. In particular on the palate (forget the finish). For its price this can compete with the cheaper range of scotch whiskey's. A good daily American dram. Current prices seem ridiculous to me.
    • Nose
      Gentle nose with the usual hints of molasses, vanilla, cake mix and cedar wood. But also cherries and strawberries. Beeswaxed furniture. Sweet notes of Turkish Delight, treacle and stewed prunes at the background.
    • Taste
      Quite velvety with butterscotch and touch of cocoa powder. Honey-clover and some candy-floss. Later on more on cinnamon and gingerbread. Sugared almonds. Spices of anise and caraway. Its not very complex but enjoyable though.
    • Finish
      Relatively short. A little white pepper and liquorice. Nothing else actually.
