  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    From the (in)famous Jim Beam Decanter series of the 1960 this is quite spectacular bourbon whiskey in my view. Delicate sweetness and smooth, but complex at the same time. Tnx Josh for the sample!
    • Nose
      A very light start. Marshmellow maltiness. Treacle toffee. Toasted almonds. Some bananas. Coconut. Vanilla and honey at the background. Cumin as well.
    • Taste
      Soft but powerful. Caramelised apples now intermingled with maple syrup. Lots of cake mix and custard powder sweetness. Hints of strawberries and cherries. Sandal wood. Cacao butter. Spices of carraway and aniseed. It's all very chewy and sappy with a lot of depth.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Cinnamon. A little nutmeg. Hints of pine at the end. Well balanced.
