  1. AdelphosHume scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Smells and tastes a lot like bourbon. A very oily bourbon. Simple and sweet with easily defined characteristics. Pairs well with food because it's flavors are strong enough to shine through. A good price to quality ratio. 
    • Nose
      The bourbon cask influence is strong. Corn oil, cherries, vanilla, dry muesli,  banana, and a touch of dill at the very end. 
    • Taste
      Syrupy for a single grain. Buttery dessert pastry, coconut cream, vanilla, green bananas and caramel, and a touch of licorice.
    • Finish
      Pink grapefruit, ginger, and soft oak tannins.

    I had this before, and whilst it’s never going to change the world I get it’s modest appeal.

    N: Banana & fudge rum-like nose with generic peach candle/synthetic syrup-y gelateria.
    T: Spirity, rum ’n’ raisin icecream flavouring. Drier, less spirity with water.
    F: Spirity still, finishing with dryish toasted [almost creme brûlée] vanilla.
    C: Archetypal campfire grain? Nose worked best for me today. Scores two points less than i had it last year.Scores a D[+]
