  1. boy_genius_ck scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    bitter and sweet, full bodied, but still basically the same as all other bourbons, i would rather have the variety of scotch

    Thanks to karloff for parting with a sample of this excellent bourbon.
    • Nose
      Hey! This is what a bourbon should smell like.

      Of course there's honey sweetness and vanilla like most, but there's some refinement and extra depth to it.

      Lots of dark fruit, plums and prunes.

      Some really high quality wood with just the right charring.

      Moist tobacco and burnt sugar crust.
    • Taste
      About the right abv to suit the full flavours.

      Vanilla, bitter orange, tobacco leaves, almost like chewing the astringent juice out of fresh rolling tobacco.

      Rich chocolate fudge.
    • Finish
      Long, slightly drying notes of wood, with a touch of fresh peppermint lasting.

    this is a wonderful bourbon and I enjoyed every drop of it, is it worth the price tag? What whiskey is these days.

    As a bourbon drinker, this hits the spot every time, and it ticks all the boxes, I couldn't leave this one alone, so you can imagine it didn't last long.    
    • Nose
      Honey and brown sugar, there is some light tobacco, vanilla, stewed dark fruits and the usual bubble gum, boiled rhubarb and ginger cake. 
    • Taste
      This is full bodied and hot and spicy, the taste is strong dry and astringent but very tasty indeed, there is some milk chocolate, blood orange and some more of those stewed dark fruits. 
    • Finish
      A very long creamy vanilla finish with a touch of polish on the death.

    An ingenious bourbon, somehow quite typical in the notes but qualitatively just a league over the 50-70, - representatives, the more time you give him, the more there is to discover, both in the glass and in the mouth, of nuts to fruits.
    • Nose
      Ingenious, full nose even after a year open bottle, lots of fruit and vanilla and purest caramel on the overflow, a bit of the well-known Bourbonklebernote, bananas, melons, burnt butter, he needs time in the glass, figs, apricots, cedar, Almonds, pineapple (the last 4-5 only very subtle and temporary)
    • Taste
      Full, butter dissolved in oil, candy, Toffiffee, Werther's Original, cinnamon, vanilla, cotton candy, red apple, apricot, creme brulee, very tingling on the tongue, light, light tobacco notes, licorice, after 15 seconds are also some nice nuts and banana
    • Finish
      Dry caramel, butter, toffee, vanilla and cinnamon all over, with apricot skin, medium to long, the dry caramel remains in the throat for a long time, plus honey sweetness on the tongue

    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

    Nose: Some pretty spicy notes, rich with oak. It's cooled down with fruity figs and plums.Palate: Sweet and buttery, with a surprising hint of orange peel. Some tobacco smokiness follows.Finish: Very long indeed, the tobacco notes in full effect.Overall: That Colonel E.H. Taylor sure knew what he was doing, and the distillers of this single barrel bourbon definitely do too. Simply fantastic.
