  2. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    An absolutely beautiful Bourbon, has its peculiarities, is very round despite the sharpness, which comes not at all from the alcohol, but beautiful spices.
    • Nose
      Distinct cereal notes, yeast, beautiful hazelnut notes, Hanuta everywhere in between, roasted nuts as well, a little bit of butter biscuit, banana jellies, nutmeg, cinnamon, almonds, marshmallow
    • Taste
      Cloves, cinnamon, quite a bit of nutmeg, black pepper, corn broth, hazelnut, hanuta, roasted chestnut, almonds, wild honey, vanilla and caramel, all in all a nice mixture of sharpness, power, but also balancing, flattering sweetness and nuttiness
    • Finish
      Clove, oak, nutmeg, pepper, dry-spicy with some delicious honey sweetness and nuts, medium to long

    • Nose
      A pic-mix selection of nuts: Hazelnuts, walnuts, coconuts, roasted almonds and nutmeg. I did never smell a whiskey like this before. Very rich with toffee in the background.
    • Taste
      A world full of nuts - again! Some of them taste bitter.

      Rich, dry, oaky and spicy with additional notes of coffee, toffee snd cloves. Quite spirituous as well.
    • Finish
      Quite short with a dry and bitter nutty aftertaste.

    From a blind tasting!
    Nose. Grain mix, that's no junk, vanilla, caramel, sawdust, lots of woody flavors, banana jelly, marzipan First uih what is that then wow there is more and more and always gets better and better.
    Taste: INTENSIVE! What an aroma boom. More sawdust, lots of woody notes, vanilla without finish, peach and banana, a damn long finish with breathtaking sweetness and vanilla. In addition, a fine wood note that is never too intrusive Damn good and tasty!
    I am clinging to an ami. A good and sure old Bourbon with around 50% - Eagle Rare 17?
    Wow - thanks to the donor of the blank. What really rare and has quite a lot of wood and color for the young age!

  5. TheFarfar scored this whisky 86 points Member Senior

    Very pleasant drink that improves with time.
    • Nose
      Pleasantly spicy oak. Some caramel, toffee and vanilla a bit back.
    • Taste
      Smooth oily texture with lots of caramel and toffe with some butterscotch and vanilla in the background.
    • Finish
      Smooth at first with dark chocolate, toffee, coffee and cloves. Transitions to spicy, peppery oak without the tannins.

  6. Ralph Hiltrup did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Rich, deep aroma of butterscotch, nutmeg, vanilla and coconut.
    • Taste
      Notes of caramelized oranges and fruit dominate the palate, along with touches of melted butter, whipped cream and oak.
    • Finish
      Finish is smooth, with touches of toffee, milk chocolate and espresso.
