Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose:

      Initial sweetness – caramel, brown sugar – gives way to soft fruity notes and vanilla.

    • Palate:

      More savoury than the nose suggests, with toasted nuts and cinnamon notes.

    • Finish:

      Initially light but sweet spice builds over time.

    Smooth but complex as it hits the back of the tongue. The fire builds slowly creating a warm floral after-taste with hints of vanilla and toffee. I found that adding a drop of ice water to the glass before you pour, releases even more subtle flavors.

    Very moreish and very easy to drink. Maybe even a little too easy with its unforgettable oaky sweetness but still has the kick of a real Kentucky Bourbon, I would highly recommend this to any whisky/whiskey drinker. Easily compares to an average single malt – at under £25 you can't go wrong.

    Very very hard to beat this. Perfect delivery, on the palate and finish. You cannot go wrong. This has converted me from Scotch to bourbon totally.

    I’m not a whisky drinker so I don’t claim to be an expert but damn this is superb. Better than JD; smooth with no after taste. Buy it, you won’t regret it.

    This whiskey is pretty average, but it is worth the money if you're looking to get a good bourbon for a great price. The nose, for me, is caramel apples on a boat floating down a vanilla river. On the palate, it's more roasted almond and a cinnamon bite with a slight nutty bitterness. Finish enhances the more you drink with a sweet spice. Overall, pretty decent.

    I really enjoy this one. Nice ABV. Great price point. Reminds me of a camping trip I took several years ago. Mosquitoes were ferocious but Maker's kept me jolly. Lol

    Disappointed given its reputation, I had expected more. Too much alcohol taste/smell that doesn't subside even with a generous amount of water. I don't dislike it but won't be replacing my bottle when finished

    Here's the review you want. I like you, enjoy smooth whiskys where I can taste flavours (or flavors for my american friends). I don't like to feel a burn drinking whisky, but I took a gamble on this one and I was impressed. My only negative is it could use some smoke finish. It won't be the 12-15 year old smooth finish you're looking for, but you'll get very close for half the price :) Enjoy!

    Solid bourbon. Beats JD No. 7 hands down.

    This product is just not good enough for the price range. I would only rate this the same as Passport Scotch. Really dissappointing

    A very good bourbon for the price: beats JD hands down; smooth, flavoursome and warming.

    It's the "Honda Accord" of bourbon! Solid, reliable, high quality, high value! My overall favorite!

    It's a smooth yet powerful handcrafted bourbon which commands respect when drunk or it'll catch you out my favourite bourbon so far
