Willett Family Estate Bourbon 12yr #743

  • Distiller:


  • Bottler:


  • ABV:


  • Age:

    12 Years

  • Intro:

    It's WIllett...who knows? I think people just fight over these cause its the hip thing to do. Or it makes them feel like Goyk. Or its the tube. Who knows...but its whiskey and that means I'm gonna drink it! Lets see what the deal is.

  • Nose:

    Maple syrup, rich oak. Cherries, cocoa. Lots of nice earthy tannins. Some honey and some tea leaves. Real interesting.

  • Taste:

    Thick and syrupy. Rich and spicy. Very very oaky. Earthy with lots of clove, cinnamon and even a hint of cardamom. Heat is big and bold but not punishing.

  • Finish:

    Dry and bitter. Good deal of heat. Some nice maple and brown sugar but it quickly becomes tannic.

  • Overall:

    Despite my notes, this still feels pretty one note. That note is spicy and oaky, with a little sweetness thrown in. I like it, but I wish there was a little more to it.

  • Score:
