  1. oSalty scored this whisky 78 points Member Junior

    The nose is much more complex to the taste, which is a bit disappointing, although well balanced aside from the slightly sour finish I expected much more from a Kentucky 10-year-old

  3. SAND scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Colour: Pale to medium brown.
    Nose: Brown banana cake, banana, dried orange peel, bourbon vanilla, walnuts, caramel, dark sweet wood, darker forest honey and a touch of alcohol. Water doesn’t change the nose (88p).
    Taste: Slight sweetness, a noticeable alcohol burn, mild pepperiness. With water it becomes milder, rounder and more creamy but the pepperiness also becomes more noticeable in the aftertaste. (82p).
    More complex, balanced and simply better on the nose than on the palate.
    Total score 85 points.

  4. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Joa, a good standard bourbon, who seems to lack the 10% perfection and cut in terms of alcoholic drinks, to make more of it, 10Y are not at all bad for Bourbon ...
    • Nose
      Hachja, unfortunately, the common adhesive note of the Bourbons can not be denied here, as in 85% of all Bourbons to 60 €, otherwise Orangeat, candy, vanilla, toffee, apricot and vllt. a few other yellow fruits after a while, honey
    • Taste
      Toffee sweets with orange pieces in it, vanilla, cinnamon, honey en masse, but also light alcohol piercing for 45%, too bad, apple peel and citrus notes
    • Finish
      Already slightly peppery with the orange and toffee remaining, rather sour orange now, medium long
