  • Excerpt: There are a lot of unique, but delicious notes here. I like it a fair bit more than 1792/VSOF 2016 etc I'm going to give it a Rank 6. Wheaters still ain't my jam, but it's good and I can't ignore that.

  • Nose:

    Rich maple, cinnamon, toffee, cocoa - this could almost be a completely different dram. There's also a faint, savory note.

  • Taste:

    Thin mouthfeel, sweet with more savory notes. Clove, cinnamon, faint bubblegum, cola, cherry and some faint faint banana.

  • Finish:

    This is where the difference really seems to be from the 2016. Its medium but thick. No astringency here. The flavors from the palate are a bit muted but it makes for a much more pleasant exit. It feels far more well rounded and complex.

  • Overall:

    There are a lot of unique, but delicious notes here. I like it a fair bit more than 1792/VSOF 2016 etc I'm going to give it a Rank 6. Wheaters still ain't my jam, but its good and I cant ignore that. I'm enjoying this trend of checking out all these Fitzies and I'll have a huge review of another coming up soon.
