4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.39 points

  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Very tasty and full of bourbon, not the most complex in the world, but very powerful, almost like a cognac of mouthfeel.
    • Nose
      Fruitiness like apple and apricot, probably. a few berries on the bush, macadamia nut, honey, after a long time also orange peel and cinnamon
    • Taste
      Apricot, pome fruit, red baked apple, cinnamon, nougat, Toffifee, cherry, dark molasses, orange peel, beautiful sweet and sour fruitiness with the caramel of the bourbon and perfectly drinkable despite the%
    • Finish
      Dry fruity, apricot, orange peel, dry oak, herbs and nutmeg, medium to long

  2. irrerelevant scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    No paint thinner at all! First sniff was disappointing, but if you give some time it'll offer you an enormous sweetness and various unexpected aromas, especially when experiment with water it shows different shades. There is just so much going on, I could nose it forever, love these nuts an this thick sweetness
    • Nose
      At first sharp alcohol, this one really needs a drop (just a drop) of water and 10-20min in the glass to open up, but then... very soft spices, fresh vanilla, profound dense sweetness, a lot of, but not too much oak, thick dark caramel, very nutty, overbrewed tea, mineral, limestone, burnt cereal, chocolate, even herbal tea, maybe some leather
    • Taste
      its spicy and gentle at the same time, talisker-like pepper, deep and dark flavors, bittersweet oak, dense, creamy ristretto wich mascobado sugar, bunch of nuts (macadamia, cashew), just the right amount of thick, chewy, sirupy sweetness, herbal tea, black tea, again cereals. No trace of alcohol although I didn't add much water
    • Finish
      Long, bittersweet, mouthcoating, really dry, again overbrewed tea, nuts and chocolate, some rye and "heat", pepper again, touch of menthol

    Amazing good bourbon. 
    • Nose
      fruity, corn, vanilla, sweet, sugary, 
    • Taste
      abv really kicks in, super powerful, hints of vanilla, its fruity and sweet.
    • Finish
      when the overpower 60% wears of its good flavours of vanilla and fruits. Sherry notes.
