  1. Tauti scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    This is hard stuff. For me not drinkable without water. With water a solid Bourbon with a nice bottle. I used a tumbler for this one. Which you can use as a perfumed vanilla/honey candle replacement afterwards. 83 pts

    Edit Summer 2019: Great Stuff for Cocktails!
    • Nose
      BAMMM! What a massive load of alcohol. Some vanilla, but I have to let it breathe. After 15 minutes nice Vanille/Honey mixture with wood spices and oranges. Something which reminds of christmas (cinnamon?)
    • Taste
      Without water: Not that funny to drink. Lots of alcohol... After a little sip of water pretty good. Again vanilla and more honey than in the nose, cooling alcohol spicy and kinda waxy texture.
    • Finish
      Long - first vanilla and wood spice, in the end a little bit bitter.
