  3. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Enthusiasm 3/5 Whisky n ° 1706
    • Nose
      Cereal profile on the nose, nutty, austere, straight, simple. Golden malt, fruity promise in a second time.
    • Taste
      In the mouth, more honeyed and sweet than announced on the nose. Quite generous for 43%. Fluid texture, reduction a little sensitive but quite well controlled despite everything.
    • Finish
      Cinnamon in the finish.

    I like it - simple honest quality bourbon from good barrels
    • Nose
      very fresh lemon with mint, delicate oak, a little vanilla, slightly warmed - noticeable oak, nice light wood, oily, roasted cereals, wax,
    • Taste
      At first very mild and pleasing, a little oak, lemon, lemon oil, apple, honey, with every sip of full-bodied a lot of oak - some chocolate, sprigs, vanilla pudding, a little hay
    • Finish
      warming, spicy, for 12 years nice full-bodied - medium
