I started drinking whisky only because of my love for bourbons. Big bold personalities unashamed of smothering you with flavors whereas most Scottish single malts chose to remain restrained and courteous.

And Bernheim Original was one of the first that I managed to get my hands on.

The nose is an intense pounding of warm chocolate and maple syrup with squished blue berries and raisins. All poured into a bowl of steaming hot caramel marchiato with a few cardamom pods.

The intensity continues on the palate with the same clove infused maple syrup drizzled on a chocolate orange cake. Fantastic.

The long finish is once again bristling with chocolate covered cloves.

This is brilliant stuff. Unafraid and brash with a wagon full of attitude.

@tabarakRazvi, don't forget to mention that this is a WHEAT WHISKEY. It does share the new oak aging with bourbon. Glad you like Bernheim Original. I do too.
