  4. Ziegelhütte-Idstein did not rate this whisky Member Junior

    • Nose
      Spices, more spices with some herbal and tea flavor
    • Taste
      Aromas of white pepper, orange, lemon and corn notes are offset by soft cinnamon, rye and sweet caramel
    • Finish
      Dry and rather short finish with a powerful dash of refreshing cinnamon and light vanilla

  5. Cubey666 scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Tasted this  Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey during an American Tasting by Whiskey4all.nl end of June 2017

    Nose: notes of glue, fresh wood, spicy and fresh mint

    Taste: clearly influences of rye on a sweet bourbon body. it gives a bit of a slimy impression in the mouth.

    Finish: Hay, bit alcoholic, brown sugar.

    Comments: approx: 63% corn, 10% barley and 27% rye.

  6. Andytka3 scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    N- Almond, walnut with sweet mint and ginger bread. Pleasant with
    diversify fragrant, not the usual maple and vanilla oriented bourbon. P- Spicy and tart, almond again with grassy notes. Herbaceous, high
    rye, not easy on first sip, but were quite nice on the follow up.  Light texture that works well with the taste.
     
    F- Medium, dry with touch of bitter, dry roots perhaps. A good variant of bourbon with unconventional style and profile.

    — at The Whiskey Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

  8. Tobs1991 scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Whilst on the nose quite promising, the body might have needed a bit more ABV to convince me. Also the finish seems way too short in my opinion.

  9. karloff scored this whisky 91 points Specialist

    This has been on my wish list for a log time and i eventually saw it in my local whiskey shop, getting harder to get hold of apparently. The wait was worth it, this is a really nice and complex bourbon, it wasn't cheap, but it wasn't expensive either.

  10. karloff scored this whisky 91 points Specialist

    Top Notch Bourbon and it was a treat to myself.
    • Nose
      Mmmm!!! quite a complex nose of candy, burnt toast, Black forest gateau, summer fruit pudding, new leather and blood orange, really nice,deep and strong aromas.
    • Taste
      The taste is just as good, summer fruit pudding again but this time with cream. Medium bodied with vanilla sweetness and dark plums. At 40% it's really bang on the nose.
    • Finish
      A nice medium, dry finish, with some oak in the background and sarsaparilla on the death.
