    A strange bourbon. From my point of view, the nose and the palate are dominated by a note that is reminiscent of furniture polish. Only with the best will I can win this whiskey flavors. Blindfolded, I suspect that they're holding a bottle of furniture or car polish under my nose. Even on the palate remains a similar nachwirkender taste. Not my bourbon - 03.01.2019
    • Nose
      Furniture polish, some caramel, vanilla, sand cake
    • Taste
      Oily and sweet, the polish note is also very dominant here, slightly caramel and slightly nutty, cucumber, earthy notes and some oak, to the end bitterness of a fresh walnut
    • Finish
      Short

    Luckily it was my first bourbon, because I like it right away. Had my doubts but I'm glad to have bought. Price performance of the hammer.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Vanilla, light cinnamon note, sour and yet sweetish, A-oak, clear bourbon note, nutty and almost complex, with this age surprising notes.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Now, in short, the bourbon effect I do not like, but then clear sweetness, even sour with spiciness, thought: car polish, it remains a delicate herbal note. OK.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium long round finish, some oak and therefore also spicy, sweet and sour at the same time, noticeable herbs on the finish. Slightly nutty and warming.

    Very pleasant bourbon, full flavor.
    • Nose
      vanilla, sweet, honey, alcohol fairly prominent. Apple, raisins, corn
    • Taste
      Sweet, vanilla honey, wood tones. Soft and full, corn again. creamy mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      Soft, sweet, vanilla, reasonably long, wood tones. White chocolate too, and pistachio.

  6. Jean Ginster scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Never was a Bourbon fan, but this one tastes really good and is interesting.
    • Nose
      sweet and sour, oak, furniture polish, vanilla, some cinnamon, a little walnut, quite complex
    • Taste
      sweet, then a slightly sour oak spice, roasted walnut with some furniture polish, then a delicate herbal note
    • Finish
      short to medium-long round finish, it remains a very slight oak, slightly sweet, slightly sour, with the herbal notes. From the throat comes as aftertaste a nutty sweetness

  8. Defeatless scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Sweet vanilla, bbq coal. woodshavings. Pencil dust. There is some odd smelling candy in here, but I like it. In the background there are quite some spices like garam masala, cinnamon, cardamom and clove.

    Taste:
    A little alcohol burn. But then it gets really sweet and bourbon smooth. There are quite some dark herbs in here.

    Body:
    a little weak. There might be some chill-filtration being done.

    Finish:
    Medium-long length. Quite dark brown sugar. liquorish like finish. Then there is a tad bitterness and it all goes down with a wood/bourbonvanilla/icecream taste.

    Price:
    Yet another very reasonable priced bourbon.

    Presentation:
    I like it, not too much, not too little

  9. Noface83 scored this whisky 84 points Specialist

    Nose: vanilla, spicy honey, rum raisins, a lot of oak, dates, a touch of chocolate, some sour apples and wild honey, the alcohol is easily noticeable Taste: strong onset, lots of vanilla, typical Bourbon sweetness with a slight touch of glue, hearty oak (pepper and herbs). In the medium-long finish notes of grain, intense sweetness, strong oak (fresh geschnittebes wood) and a bitterness as one would chew on tea leaves, light alcohol sharpness
    Very intense bourbon with bite and character. One of my favorites in the price range.
