As many might suspect the title is an analogy both to the reliable and sturdy nature of the US army Jeep, but also to the Band of Brothers series, for which this whisky's appearance is most known. Although appearances in many other film productions is noteworthy, time to explore ;)

Time also then to rediscover this good'ole blend. On the nose: their is a fair bit of caramelized sugar/caramel with a hint of vanilla, pear and faint smoke, all in good harmony.

The arrival is smooth and balanced with the vanilla coming in with a lightly smoky veil of mixed peppers, caramel, more caramel. The developement takes the vanilla to some clove and salty gravy. The developement continues with vanilla and caramel and the finish is fairly swift. This is a cheap blend though, and for what it is and always has been, a very good vehicule for flavour.

Sure is! If a fan of this decent and cool blend, you would enjoy the famous scene when Cpt. Nixon goes empty on his VAT 69 stock, and basically goes a bit mental. Also a wonderfull production that i recommend definetely. Great protagonists/characters that you really start to bond with as the mini-series evolves, making you feel part of this band of brothers ;)
