    Haribo experience! Delicious sweet notes on a stimulating background.
    • Nose
      Sweet, vanilla, honey. Fruity too, orange, some banana, and candy-like.

      Lightly tingling, sweet, candy! Gummi bears or something. Soft, little orange again.
    • Finish
      Light pepper, sweet, also gummi bears and orange, slightly bitter. Mid-length

  5. markjedi1 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Well, that was a pleasant surprise. And very affordable as well.
    • Nose
      Very soft and accessible nose on all kinds of fruit like plums, cherries and pears – I was not expecting that last bit – with loads of caramel and some toasted oak up front, while some soft spices and some wood glue join at the back. New leather too. After a few moments it turns a bit floral. Violets. Honey blossoms! I must say, I quite like this.
    • Taste
      The body is good. The strength as well. The sweetness kicks in from the get-go – with the caramel in the lead and the fruit in second place – supported by a lovely spiciness. Think cinnamon, nutmeg and a little peppery note. Nice balance.
    • Finish
      The finish is not bad either. Medium long, gently spicy with some roasted nuts at the death;

  9. Mephisto scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Not bad, the dry cacao is dominant. A lot of taste for 43.2 vol.% alcohol.
    • Nose
      Corn syrup and blossom honey. Sweet with dried herbs (forest), a hint of lemon, dark chocolate, fine leather, bourbon vanilla and freshly baked pie.
    • Taste
      Dry, not so much sweetness. Muscat, herb decoction, oak and dark chocolate bitterness. No fruits from my points of view, only slightly sour.
    • Finish
      Roasted nuts, even drier, cacao beans and toasted wood.

  10. HunterRomario scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Cool, nothing bothers me with this bourbon, which is always a plus for US production.
    • Nose
      America's smoother and smoother scent. Skin, light thinner, cannabis, cinnamon, chocolate. (83 b)
    • Taste
      Even the taste is smooth, it's no wildlife. Honey, wood, cloves, cinnamon, chocolate, raisins, cedar, caramel, grep, light scent, but really decent. (83 b)
