  1. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: First impressions – delicious. Theres a softer edge to this than most highly charged, ultra silky/varnished bourbons. Its more in-between a bourbon and a whiskey which suits my palate just fine. Later on its heading towards milky Weetabix with almond milk and oily corn.
    T: Nutty – almonds again, creamy corn too and marzipan with a lovely soft/sweet/sponge-dry mouthfeel. The sugar character is reminiscent of Koval’s millet grain WB. Adding water maintains these sugars for longer but cancels out the more complex herbal at the finish. The sweet spot exists somewhere between the development and the finishing stage. Sweet/herbal/sour is established before the wood really seems to kick in.
    F: Heaps of herbal vanilla and soured cream. Theres a bitter herbal edge now, growing till the end. A long finish with lots to discover leading to a sour, herbal, soft, sweet, creamy conclusion.
    C: A good bourbon, now with a softer side.

    Scores a C+

    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Volcanic embers 

    Flavour: Spicy & sweet Warm, sweet and spicy aromas on the nose neat, just like an
    ooey-gooey sticky cinnamon bun with cardamom and coriander straight out of the
    oven. This was followed by aromas of thick vanilla custard and a Dark ‘n’
    Stormy highball cocktail with black rum and ginger beer. The taste was full-on;
    cinnamon sticks dipped in molasses and a giant boozy Jaffa cake. Diluted, the
    aromas turned into lemon and honey wax candles, perfumed wood as well as herbal
    essences whilst an easier approach on the palate; banana bread with rum soaked
    sultanas and a freshly brewed lemon balm and mint tea.

    Drinking Tip: Playing pool listening to Black Oak Arkansas
