  • Bottler:

    Van Winkle

  • ABV:


  • Age:


  • Intro:

    Nathan Stone is an old, hotly contested, and debated release. Linked closely to the Van Winkles, this export bottling is special to many and expensive to all.

  • Nose:

    Allspice, clove, caramel and toffee. The toffee is really prominent, as is a whole lot of clove.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouthfeel. Weirdly sweet. Oranges, vanilla, lemon lime. Seems almost too sweet to be a straight spirit, but its not syrupy so Im just going to assume its a straight whiskey. Theres clove, allspice, faint rubber and faint astringency. I sampled this gem blind, hence the hemming and hawwing.

  • Finish:

    Some oak present. This dram isnt modern, guessing its old, especially based on the weird cloying fruit notes and a blend of astringency.

  • Overall:

    It seems too sweet at first but it settles down. Oak is present. Lovely and complex. Quite a bit happening.

  • Score:
