Buying a bottle of Lamb's Navy Rum (151 Proof),which is distributed by Corby's, there was an attached mini of Wiser's Deluxe. Gotta love synergy.
I've tried a few Wiser's products and liked them, but this isn't a special release. It's bottled at 40%, NAS, etc...
Honey, syrup, caramel, vanilla, cookie dough..
Sweet but not cloying, a little spiciness, caramel and vanilla.
Short. Spices fade out leaving oaky astringency.
Good balance between the nose and palate. A little sweet. Might have been a little more interesting at 43% or higher.
Total Score: 83/100
I'm sure I would choose other Wiser's products such as Legacy or Dissertaion over this one, but i was pleasantly surprised by this one. It holds its own as a sipper.
