Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Rich and spicy, with warming notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove, and crème brûlée topped with Demerara sugar. Hints of dried apricot, grape and almond, too.

    Palate: Good spicy kick of rye first up, then softer notes of dried fruit and sweet spice follow. Toasty and nutty, with enough fruitiness to soften out the edges.

    Finish: Well-balanced mix of sweet spice and warming rye.

    After seeing a lot of good reviews of this I decided to get a bottle. I found it to be incredibly hot, far hotter than the other bourbons I've had in the 45-55% alcohol range. I couldn't detect any stand out flavours beyond the heat. To me it drank like a bottom-shelf bourbon with an alcoholic smack in the face.

    Normally go for scotch but fancied something different. On my first glass, added an ice cube as seemed strong, enjoying. Might have another one!

    After drinking the putrid whiskeys like Jim Beam and Jack Daniel’s (though the Single Barrel is great), I gave this a go. It’s dominated by its high rye spice, but underneath you will taste light vanilla oak and a hint of fruit citrus. More spice than sweet, the high rye giving a unique character smoother than you’d expect with a creamy mouthfeel. I’d say this has been in a barrel least four years. Plus at 45% vol better quality than most of the 40% vol muck on the market – you are getting good bag for your buck. You're getting a pretty good bourbon for your money. This was my first real dabble into the world of bourbon. Are there better out there? Yes, but in the £20-30 range I would say this is the best.

    I'm not normally a bourbon guy, but i'm always making sure this one is on the shelf. Nothing fancy, but spicy and just enough kick to it – a great bourbon to enjoy neat.

    Brilliantly spicy! The flavours are great! Nice with cola and I like it in an Old Fashioned. Fantastic bourbon you should definitely try!

    Good taste and a good way of getting into bourbon if all you normally have is Jim beam.

    A really nice alternative to makers mark with an interesting kick of spice. Nice neat but really stands up to a cocktail works well with the bitters in an old fashioned! Will be buying again. Very good value

    This is a solid, very good, bourbon. Just enough of a kick, but not overpowering; nothing fancy. If you like Maker's Mark in the wheated category, then this is an equivalent in the high rye category.
