Well as a liker of single malt Scotch, this is a bit of a change of pace for me. Compared to the equivalent drinks from Jack Daniels and Jim Beam, this is worlds apart. Far superior. It still have a bit of a rough edge to it compared to a good single malt but that is to be expected.
JD and JB are basically now mixing fodder. Or heavily on the rocks. This however can be sipped neat or with a drop of water and not embarrass itself like the other brands. Sure it is slightly more expensive but not shockingly so unless the other brands are on offer. Even if they are on offer this is still worth the extra.
Aroma Woody oak, caramel, vanilla and wheat prevail in the nose.
Taste Sweet and balanced with caramel, vanilla and fruity essences.
Finish Smooth and subtle.
