  1. irrerelevant scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Thick, sweet and "crafty", needs a little water, some time in the air is good for him, then shows fruity, more harmonious, drier, slightly sour and complex. The slightly alcoholic note and the woody sawdust note initially tarnish the picture somewhat, but after a while disappear almost completely and make room for mineral grain notes, sourdough, tart herbs and bitter black tea, a nice counterpart to the sweetness. It's not the most complex bourbon, but amazingly standalone, substantial whiskey. Hard to find defects, for about 20 € the hammer Addendum: The bottle is now a time open, there are no Fehlnoten (alcohol, sawdust, sharpness etc) more, really adult, I give no more water.
    • Nose
      Sweet vanilla, the alcohol is noticeable, but does not work like 50%, slight solvent notes, walnut ice-cream, a slight cereal note, some clove / cinnamon, cream caramel, "woody" / sawdust with a little water a beautiful fruit note (ripe, sweet pear, apricot), the wood note disappears, cereals become clearer, herbs and a mineral freshness are added
    • Taste
      round, full-bodied with a thick, deep, enormous, but natural sweetness, surprisingly soft and mild with a lot of vanilla, and clear but pleasant oak, with Belgian waffle and cream caramel creamy with water, the cream caramel is darker and clearer, creme brulee, bitter-bitter herbs come, to a dryness of brewed black tea, sourdough bread
    • Finish
      it dries up, oak becomes more and more clear, with herbs, not so sweet caramel and spicy grain, the acidity note becomes clearer, the woody note from the nose returns, a little sweetness remains

    Strong, sweet bourbon with bite, spice and oak. Nice all-rounder.

  4. holborndrinker scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Decent for a bourbon.
    • Nose
      Treacle and sugar predominate on the nose - like a 70s sweet shop.
    • Taste
      The sweetness is balanced by a whack of alcohol and a trace of maple cured bacon.
    • Finish
      Not too long on the finish although it is quite fiery.

    Probably the best value bottle you can buy under 20€

    It's got nice balance, medium complexity and no off-notes, works as a nice everyday sipper.
