  1. grinface scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Incredibly poised and balanced. Nice fruits and sweetness. Another great bourbon maturation. Based on Linkwood, I would say more herbs would be a nice counterpart. Critique at a high level!

  3. LeChiffre scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A beautifully aged linkwood from the bourbon barrel, with a delicious fresh-fruity profile. The whole is complemented by a powerful peppery spice as a nice additional element. For me it falls into the category of summer whisky.
