    Warm caramel apple, brown sugar nose, very smooth, doesn’t drink thin but goes down like water. Medium long finish with oak, vanilla, and spice.

    A little thin bodied. Green apple, grain nose. Medium/light oak, fairly short finish. Some ethanol bite. Not bad, could hold up nicely in a highball.

    A bit of smoke, a bit of sherry, not particularly sweet, drinks lighter than it’s proof. Could use a bit more on the nose.

    On flavor alone this is 4/5, but it is incredibly drinkable, incredibly versatile, and makes the best highball out there. I always have a bottle on hand.

    Vanilla custard, green apple. Nose has a bit of an ethanol hit, benefits from a tiny amount of water. Great after dinner whisky.

    Mellow all around, but not overly so. Honey, malt, light fruits on the palate. Light, clean finish that lingers.
