    Thanks for sharing Norbs!
    • Nose
      Syrup,  orange, honey, almond paste, grains - corn, oily and cacao.
    • Taste
      Orange, honey, chocolate and some fruity notes - peach. Later more waxy tones. Again this batch insane 'drinkable' at this ABV.
    • Finish
      Grains, syrup and pepper.

  5. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    N: The oak speaks loudly. Theres an ‘olde vibe’ overall with a sweet liquidised fruit-tincture quality and a spread of shoe polish. 
    T: Equally sweet=herbal with lots of cask input. Goes almost sour into the finish.
    F: Almost bitter-sour now, but the tincture quality remains sweet & oaky finishing with [an illusion of] dunnage.
    C: Doesn’t like water and incredibly, doesn’t seem to need it. Whilst the Thomas H Handy’s have fallen from the bourbon top spot in the last few years, the Stagg remains very much on top [on par with the Pappy’s]. Talking of which, let’s follow up with the latest Handy now. Blog
