  1. BXpress scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    sample.

    Very good. When freshly poured this is a very standard bourbon matured Whisky. Give it some water and a little time and it will turn into an amazing whisky.
    • Nose
      Begins with a very strong note of honey. Then some peppery vanilla, pretty much like a Bourbon actually. Now some fruit. Tinned pineapples, slightly lemony, a touch of banana, and some peach. Also a very present note of white chocolate cream.
    • Taste
      That same white chocolate note in the arrival. Very creamy. Then it gets very herbal. It's very much a cough medicine taste. Amazing. Slightly fizzy somewhere in the middle and then some liquorice mixed with orange drops. More herbal stuff right before the finish.
    • Finish
      Certainly long and kinda dry. Again that white chocolate note.

  2. hs305 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Oh, what a strange nose!  I never had a nose that dominant on camphor
    and menthol, not sure if I like that.  But it is very interesting at
    least.  The same on the palate, so it is a love-it-or-hate-it dram. No, I do not love it and this would result in a devastating score.

    But as I cannot find any of the aromas or flavours from the other reviews and they do not state this extreme taste maybe it is all due to a spoiled sample (some old medicine left in the bottle???).  It would be unfair to do a rating here...

    Just finishing this bottle off, full fat fruity malt one of the best lower cost purchases I have made, i will look out for another bottle for sure.

      Light and fruity with a bit of coconut , golden delicious apples and those Refresher chewy sweets I used to get when I was a kid .

      A lovely long and dry sherbet dip finish .
