An aroma of paraffin on fire with creamy undertones. Tickles the tongue with cinnamon and hits the throat with liquorice... leaving the lips fully anaesthetised. This is a whisky that wakes you up, that makes you want to dance. Bold in every way, you’ll be dreaming BIG long after. Moreish!
At 130+ proof, it's hot, but not at all in a nasty way. Moreover, a drop of water tones it down to make it dangerously approachable. It's got all the things I've come to love about corn whiskeys (the sweet and fruity notes, with a lovely finish that sticks around for a while), but more of it. I attribute at least part of that to the strength of the bottling, but also to the time in ex-bourbon oak (notes of which also come through very pleasantly). Really nicely done, and when I next get a chance at a full bottle of it, I'm in!
A delight, with a little water for me, to take your time and enjoy the flavours. It is a fantastic addition to the Simply Whisky growing range.
Such a great whisky. I love this.
One for sipping when quietly reflecting on life’s ups and downs I think. Well crafted to deliver its strength in a pleasant, rather than overpowering, manner. Moreish, so if you are drinking this with pals it will disappear fast.
