  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A good whiskey, but it's a bit too uncompromising and powerful to my taste.
    • Nose
      This reminds me as much of bourbon as it does of pot still Irish whiskey. It's probably the spices and pronounced triple sec notes, accompanied by a big whack of vanilla. Faint notes of rye, as well as a touch of glue and peaches.
    • Taste
      Syrupry, but now we're pretty much in grain whiskey territory.  There's big orange notes, a good amount of oak and spices and a bit of espresso, but also caramel, vanilla and apple. At the back of palate a more pronounced sherry cask influence reveals itself.
    • Finish
      Lingering spices, caramel and apple.

    Balance (21)
    It's rather bourbon, good bourbon (84)
    • Nose
      Dry, grass and wood ... raw dough, vanilla ... with water healing candies and apples. I changed my glass and mood ... I earned a lot of flower honey +1 (21)
    • Taste
      Caramel, varnish, wood (21)
    • Finish
      Finish sweet, caramel, varnish, vanilla (21)

    In a new comparison RedBreast beautiful flight. Putting three editions of 12yo barrels next to each other is therefore quite a decent show. Batch: B1 / 13 - 59.9%, B1 / 17 - 58.2%, B2 / 19 - 55.8%. Ideal for comparing the continuity of flavors and the art of a master blender to make batch by batch the same. So I rate the B1 / 13 edition as unrivaled, especially against the new B2 / 19. This one is much darker, darker, there are many common factors from 21yo. Really great

    On the nose, characteristic smell of sherry, then scents of rum and bourbon!
    2nd:
    rum molasses for sure, there must be a lot of grain in it, otherwise, vanilla, caramel, dried fruit dried, a little mold and wood.

    This is a drop, which I wish for the bar in heaven, whereby the magic potion does not overburden the certainly not too richly endowed cash register of Peter at the same time.
    • Nose
      First, I want to find out the Fassart: But first comes apple, slightly leathery umflort, then rise bitered apple seeds and a colorful and fresh fruit mix. But back to the barrels used: definitely the finest sherry, but also vanilla from bourbon barrels. But that is really a successful mixture! Very fine barrels!
    • Taste
      Syrupy, full-bodied, spicy. What more do you want?
    • Finish
      And everything condenses in the finish something, without any share would gain the upper hand. Slightly salty (like with a splash of sea water) and peppery.
