This whisky has less burn than its standard version, but the flavor profile is somewhat similar. This is not a whisky for drinking neat. The edginess of the standard VO is toned down, probably due to the two years of extra aging, but ultimately, it doesn’t make it better. Like its younger sibling, it mixes well with lemon-lime soda or ginger ale, but its price is equal to that of Crown Royal in my area, and Crown Royal is slightly better, in my opinion.
Spiced fruit, vanilla, nutmeg, corn, rye, citrus, and a hint of brown sugar.
Sweet, with light fruit salad and spice (cinnamon and nutmeg) notes. There is also a corn whiskey mixed with maple nut frosting note as well, and also something like wet paper, which is strange, I know, but I can’t describe it any other way.
Very short, with a bit of lingering spice, vanilla, and oak wood.
