- What's the great thing about such a strong, tasty whiskey? After adding lots of water, it's still damn tasty! Lots of mileage with this bottle. Good oak, good caramel, good fruits, good oak!

- N: ‘Vanilla.com’ and red fruits shout from the roof tops.
T: Aah yes, thats the George all right. Thick, active, fruity=medicinal [ripe old fruits] with a dry, smoky oiliness too.
F: After some good travel it ends with dry, dusty vanillas. Evaporates quick smart.
C: Seemingly far less complex than previous batches but its a perfectly made bourbon nonetheless. Further reading: LINK BTD
