  1. Mr.Sandwich did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    The taste from batch to batch is subject to minimal fluctuations.
    • Nose
      Dries dry, but not as dry as on the palate. Dried fruits, toasted oak, honey, mint, some tobacco and leather.
    • Taste
      Very dry and oak, but in a pleasant way. Strong he comes therefore probably a high rye content is used here. Also, aromas of cocoa and leather are noticeable. Hardly sweet and the fruitiness is only slight to feel.
    • Finish
      The medium - long finish is mild - spicy with dry wood.

    Disappointed by this bottle, problem related to the batch?

      Acetone and alcohol, very unattractive A little apple and vanilla
    • Taste
      There it is better, close to the rye. Vanilla, caramel, leather, but nothing new for a bourbon
    • Finish
      Very short, wood, burnt caramel and back of acetone.
