  • Excerpt: Im very impressed by this - it is definitely young and could use some more time - it has that "Green" wet cardboard note I get from a lot of young distillate. That being said, its sweet, buttery and complex for what it is and I"m very glad I was able to try it.

  • Nose:

    Sweet corn, caramel, toffee, vanilla

  • Taste:

    Rich mouthfeel, some mild youth (wet cardboard), sweet vanilla, cream, toffee. Still definitely young, but has really strong potential.

  • Finish:

    Long, complex but sweet. Heat is very well managed

  • Overall:

    I'm very impressed by this - it is definitely young and could use some more time - it has that "Green" wet cardboard note I get from a lot of young distillate. That being said, its sweet, buttery and complex for what it is and I'm very glad I was able to try it. The proof is on point and I really like the mouth feel. I'm not sold on WIllett's distillate yet, but this is a very confident move in the right direction for them. I'm excited to see where it goes. I'll give this a Rank 6.
