  2. The Whisky Cyclist scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Had this ome at the Limburg Festival in 2016.
    • Nose
      First very typical bourbon nose with a lot of glue (Bisonkit), when left alone, there is off course vanilla and dried fruits.
    • Taste
      Dried fruit and spices,
    • Finish
      Mouthdrying and bitter, but allright.

    A brand with a long history dating back to 1860. At some time Early Times was one of the best-selling brands in the U.S. Nowadays produced in Brown-Forman's distillery in Shively (DSP-KY-354). When this whiskey was distilled Early Times was still a premium bourbon in the U.S. Things changed in the 1980's when it was decided that Early Times would remain a quality bourbon for the export market, but a bottom-shell whiskey in the U.S.
    • Nose
      Flowery notes with light vanilla notes. Gingerbread. A little honey. Later followed with grassiness. Some soap
    • Taste
      Now more fruity sweetness of apricot and peach. Later on more on cherries and strawberries. Also hints of butterscotch and polished wood. Cedar oak. Raisins.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Truckloads of cinnamon. Burnt caramel. A little ginger. Not complex, but pleasant and dangerously drinkable whiskey.
