Distribution of ratings for this: brand user

Appearance: Light Straw

Nose: Citrus, floral...really opened up later with a few drops of water that revealed clean and crisp scents, apples and a very gentle oak in the background.

Palate: Bursts on the tongue hitting different areas like the first few bites of Juicy Fruit gum, thick mouthfeel, apple pie crust with a tart peak, shades of bourbon

Finish: Progressively becomes nutty, caramel and chocolate (think Rolo candy)


I have heard many references to Nadurra, and I think they are just. I can truly see the family resemblance. All in all, this is a solid whisky at 50% ABV. The world needs more high ABV whiskeys! Tasty and enjoyable ride. I have heard it may retail for around $120, in which case I will likely stick with the Nadurra, but this is certainly one ride I would take again.
