  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Vanilla and especially oak very marked. It stays a little closed
    • Taste
      Velvety, fleshy, superb texture. Aromatically, it's more classic, but very pleasant, fragrant and dominated by oak.
    • Finish
      Varied spices, very nice development that brings a beautiful dryness, very long.

      Enthusiasm
      Nose 3/5
      Mouth & Finale 4/5

      Whiskey n ° 2110

    The enjoyment begins with the American-style noble designed bottle and the full cork. And the rather tight bottleneck> because the producer does not want - as some other competitors - help with a giant maw to increased consumption. This wonderful drop does not really need such transparent artifacts!
    • Nose
      Crunchy golden corn, slightly smoky, vanilla and especially caramel, elegantly slightly sour
    • Taste
      strong spiciness, on the tongue sugar cane molasses
    • Finish
      Citrus fruits (for example, clear grapefruit), a slight hint of tin in addition to the fine wood, caramel, raspberry sweets, a noble bitterness prevails.

  3. Archer scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A beautiful bourbon! The Solvent note, which is so common in Bourbon, is almost entirely absent here.
    • Nose
      Strong corn sweetness, tart spices, vanilla, caramel, young oak - a nice nose, hardly any solvents.
    • Taste
      In the beginning, as expected, initially strong, but not too strong. Also undiluted are beautiful flavors of leather, caramel, cornbread and tart spices. It immediately shows a pleasant creamy mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      Long and sweet, towards the end of the strong spices come to light again.

  4. Koalafant scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Class Bourbon!
    • Nose
      Full-bodied and soft, but powerful. Notes of vanilla, caramel with light and fresh hints of herbs. A very, very slight smell of solvent scent

  7. karloff scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    This isn't as good as the last batch I had all those years ago. Looking back at my records it was a 2% lower than this one. Sometimes this works in it's favour sometimes not. Saying that this is still a great bourbon and I have enjoyed it and will revisit another bottle in a few more years.
    • Nose
      90 90
      This is a nice bourbon nose of banana cake, vanilla, elder flower, cream and butter on a scone and lots of it. One of those small apple pies with lots of sugar.
      This nose is absolutely wonderful, I could sniff it all day.
    • Taste
      88 88
      A strong creamy mouthfeel to start off with then the 56.4% hits home and it's palatable, don't see any need for water. Those fruity notes of apple and banana are joined by orange and lots of spice. There is also some bitterness which I don't remember in the last bottle I had all those years ago. Sometimes the bitterness works well at times but with this it just spoils it slightly.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The bitterness I talked about in the taste now mixes with the spices to leave a hot finish with custard and apple crumble on the death.

      long, full-bodied and surprisingly smooth for a 54%-er.

  10. domani scored this whisky 73 points Expert Senior

    An interesting, powerful bourbon. The nose provides a little surprise effect and is exceptionally aromatic. In the aroma, it looks a bit watered down, the fruit component outweighs a little bit but remains here without significant impetus. He is different, you can try it but I would not put it to me - 07.09.2018
    • Nose
      The first impression is quite mild without the classic bourbon notes. Blind my first thought would probably be somewhere with brandy and not Bourbon. After a while, it reveals itself and you will find cherry, dark chocolate, herbs, some caramel, artificial vanilla, Muh-Muh cream, fresh tobacco, solvents
    • Taste
      Slightly sour, watery texture, black pepper, block chocolate, bitterness, blood orange, physalis, sage
    • Finish
      medium
