  • Publication: The Whiskey Jug
  • Excerpt: Weirdly candy fruit, like a banana dipped in sherry or something. No actual “sherry” notes, but more the sweetness.

  • Publication: Distiller
  • Excerpt: The fruit stays with you on the palate along with maple syrup, lemon flavored tea, and coffee grounds. The whiskey finishes dry and bitter, but has a sufficient length.

  • Publication: Drinkhacker
  • Excerpt: There’s a sharpness on the back end, a reprise of well-roasted nuts, dense wood, and spicy notes of cloves, nutmeg, plus more of that old, oxidized wine character. Deep, intriguing, and soulful, today this is showing as a well-crafted whiskey worth seeking out.

  • Excerpt: The end result is a vanilla-caramel scent and relatively dark flavors. Oak, caramel and toffee dominate, with baked pear in the middle and drying to vanilla, cocoa and clove on the finish.
