Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Soft, with sweet raisins, cinnamon, toffee popcorn and a touch of black pepper. There’s also rich sweetness in the form of vanilla, honey and caramelised bananas.

    Palate: Nice and spicy, with clove and nutmeg perking up the honeyed fruit. Not too sweet (a good thing) and a good, solid punch of spicy fruit.

    Finish: The soft honey and vanilla notes sit well with the spice.

    Benchmark bourbon. A reliable, affordable classic that won't blow your socks off but also won't break the bank. Best bang for the buck, go-to whiskey.

    This is much better than the 101, but has less flavour than the 40% that used to be available in Canada. At this price, far inferior to Benchmark or Buffalo Trace (45%).

    I was never a big fan of 101. I found it a little too harsh far my taste. This, however, ticks all the right boxes. Very, very nice

    Lovely whiskey, with a caramel/toffee lingering taste and a strong oaky spice kick goes wham! great on the wintery nights.

    Nose: Rye, spice, corn Palate: Rye, char, cinnamon, allspice, wheat Finish: Clean and quick Personally, though the age is where it needs to be for a smooth whiskey, and an excellent whiskey in my opinion, it's not nearly thick enough for me. Worth picking up a bottle, but could use a tad more complexity.
