  1. erwinnlim scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Classic American whiskey notes, Vanillas, caramels and some pears. Also a strong scent of overripe bananas.
    • Taste
      Sweet toffee and some darker sugars. Rather oaky and fruity as well.
    • Finish
      Short finish, more oak spices here

  2. EvilAFI scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Good nose, a little too much green banana chalkiness and menthol flavor for my liking, but not bad at all.

    a dram of a JD, which is not a bourbon that is apart, which has its footprint indelible level nostril is singular!
    strong spices, toasted, burnt wood, vanilla, overcooked caramel.
    • Nose
      vanilla, caramel, cream, toasted wood
    • Taste
      vanilla and burnt wood, then the caramel a little too much back, a wooded a little more subtle in return
    • Finish
      simple, long enough, but very monolithic

    I got it as a present and... well you can drink it. But I can totally understand those who say that here is no difference between the No.7 and this one (We exclude the super hot bottle here).

    And for the people which do not like this whiskey (include me here), there are some fantastic whiskey sauce receipts around the world. I prefer pork filet.

    My girlfriend used it for cranachan once - yes i know Scottish national dish with an Ami whiskey? I but fits really well.

    To make a long story short:

    Fantastic whiskey - for cooking!

    Personally, I find it disappointing in terms of taste. But as a show bottle he is fine to put down.

  7. Gearmailteach scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Well, a big difference to the Old No. 7 remains hidden to me.
    • Nose
      A clear adhesive note. Lots of caramel and vanilla pudding. Behind some oak. Not very complex.
    • Taste
      Sueffig and sweet with a lot of caramel and vanilla. Behind a strong oak.
    • Finish
      Mitellang with oak.

      Alcohol comes through clearly, few nuances
    • Finish
