    Neat this is both quaffable and good, but I can imagine this being God’s gift to bartenders. Even I feel the urge to get to work with this on a nice cocktail.
    • Nose
      Sweet nose on loads of vanilla, but upholstered with flowers on the hand hand, and nail polish remover on the other. Quite creamy and soft though. Toffee kicks in with a vengeance.
    • Taste
      The spices arrive first on the palate (black pepper, cloves and a truckload of cinnamon), followed by caramel, honey and toffee. Somewhat drying on menthol.
    • Finish
      That continues in the medium long finish: menthol and spices. This fades gently to leave the mouth dry.

  3. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    It is quite bourbon-like in the nose, but spicier. A decent portion of spice, oak, but also caramel sweetness and some fruit. Nice strong, spicy, slightly bitter rye, oak in the mouth. In the finish, then oak, some mint, pepper, light fruit, a little vanilla. That's the spicy version of a bourbon. He does not differ so much, except that the corn note is clearly missing. Nice thing.

    • Nose
      Spicy and sweetish. Black bread with sugar beet syrup, cola, a little curry. Pumpkin, roasted sunflower seeds, garden herbs.
    • Taste
      Pepper, leather, some wallpaper paste. Burnt sugar, woodruff, a touch of cardboard. Warming.

    Enthusiasm Nose 3/5 Mouth and final 4/5 Whiskey n ° 1596
    • Nose
      Vanilla and solvent. Creamy. Super sweet! Flowers. Then the toffee arrives and dominates the rest, simplifying a little the initial complexity.
    • Taste
      Spices (but never overwhelming), rye, slight drought. Alcohol is very well integrated!
    • Finish
      it sparkles! Superb freshness mentholée! Milky and imposing.
