  1. Mr.Sandwich scored this whisky 63 points Expert Senior

    An upscale bourbon from Beam.
    • Nose
      Strong oak aroma combines with a touch of vanilla, lots of spice and roasted nuts.
    • Taste
      Strong mouthfeel with a light burning sensation and tart aromas of charred oak, corn, honey and vanilla.
    • Finish
      Voluminous long, spicy-sweet and warming

  3. Gloin scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    I like the smell, the light solvent does not bother me, the alcohol evaporates, it remains a nice, intense bourbon smell. The taste is harsh and again intense, if not very complex. The finish looks classic with caramel and oak and I like it. Its intensity makes this bourbon pleasing, if not in every way. He is well suited for mixing, as he can also prevail against fruit juices, for example, in the whiskey sour.
    • Nose
      Strong caramel and vanilla, also the alcohol is to be felt, slight adhesive note, solvents, then it is suddenly very nutty, almonds, marzipan, a hint of grassy notes, overall very intense and expressive
    • Taste
      Very strong onset, immediately noticeable oak, spicy, dry, astringent, tart caramel, barely sweet, slightly metallic, late at night slightly vanilla, pudding
    • Finish
      Warming, again tart caramel, a little sweeter now, oak, not eternal but long

  4. Laird Blonag scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    A bourbon without glue! Unfortunately not as much vanilla as hoped for, but more "dark" notes. Can enjoy both pure and in a cocktail.
    • Nose
      Nougat, ginger bread, oak, dark cocoa, vanilla, pine needles, spruce resin, ginger ale and fortunately no glue!
    • Taste
      Mild, sweet, spicy oak, dark nougat, vanilla, cocktail cherries, orange peel, prominent oak, medium tannins, some ginger and green bananas.
    • Finish
      Medium long, warming, some oak, sweetener, a ginger note and some old-lady perfume.
