    For a bourbon quite decent, but the alcoholic notes are still too pronounced.
    • Nose
      Sweetness with strong vanilla and some plum
    • Taste
      Strong caramel notes with fruits. Warming with a bit too strong alcohol.
    • Finish
      Dry finish with light berry flavors, intense mid-length finish.

    A very smooth, refined bourbon mostly differentiated through the triple pot stilled distillation process unique to WR and few other bourbons. A drop or two of water definitely opens it up. Very sweet and sugary but complex with a medium to long finish. 87/100
    • Nose
      Floral notes, combined with rich coffee, and cinammon. combined with traditional honey, vanilla and maple syrup notes found in many classic bourbons. A very sweet and fruity nose with a little bit of water as well. 
    • Taste
      Immediate burst spice and a distinct rye edge. Moves into a sweet fruity notes of orange, and marmalade along with a strong hit of cherry towards the end. Coffee and chocolate as well.
    • Finish
      Very smooth medium finish clove, coffee, woodspice along with honey and vanilla are present throughout.
