  3. Horror_Vacui scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Vanilla, nutmeg, allspice, lots of star anise and caramel.
    Some grilled banana with a few drops of water.

    Mouth:
    Spicy, cloves and anise, cinnamon. Caramel and vanilla again as a contrast to the spice, beautifully balanced.

    Finish:
    Rather short, the oak presses.

    Conclusion:
    I'm not that Bourbon fan, but I like it a lot. Probably does not get a regular place on the shelf, but the bottle is like emptied

    Was a blind tasting. I was very surprised that a Bourbon can be so good ...
    • Nose
      Very nice golden brown color, a light reddish, maybe a little sherry? Pleasant aroma that dominates oak. Soft, spicy, not sweet.
    • Taste
      In the taste then rather a Sherry influence perceptible. I also hear cask strength.
    • Finish
      Creamy, fruity, honey.
