This is the base product from WT but by no means does that relate to inferior, this bourbon punches well above its price bracket costs me 22.95 euro plus shipping from europe. Totals around £18 or $27.50 all in but cheapest I can find it on sale in UK is £25.

Nose is sweet honey and caramel with vanilla and spice classic bourbon with just a bit of alcohol which settles after a few minutes in the glass.

Taste starts out brown sugar and caramel with a viscous oily consistency which immediately starts to coat the mouth and tongue as the liquid hits the mid palate spice heat starts to develop with cinnamon and cloves.

Long finish with a satisfying heat from the spice and a slight alcohol punch with a bit of drying oak which just leaves you wanting another taste.

This is a good solid product with a mix of 6,7 and 8 year casks and I would not be without a bottle in my developing cabinet

Just had a bottle of the 8 year old new label do not rate as highly as the NAS probably around a 76 slightly off note on the palate couldn't get the sweetness on palate but the spice was still there will be sticking with the NAS in future have one in stock and different league in a H2H.
