    the overall tasting review is pretty much right on: full bodied & rich, but i failed to get a better taste after the first sip. not my cup of tea.

    batch 12 - wow. holy crap with the sweetness. 132 proof? doesn’t even feel it with all that flavor coming through. much too easy to drink & enjoy. will be interesting to try with a good meal to see how the flavor will level out

    with just a bit more richness to fill out the middle, this would be an absolute top notch bourbon. even as is, it’s a great drink: good amount of dry oak, great sweetness. the flavor doesn’t shrink with food either.

    slightly oaky, but plenty of body with a decent amount of burn & sweet. biggest hindrance... the burn gets in the way of the taste whereas in the booker’s 30th the proof enhances the flavor. overall not bad at all 👍

    nutty & oaky. tried to drag out the sweetness with extended holding in mouth or a drop of water, but it never showed up. great bourbon but a little extra sweetness would have taken me over the top.

    2018 release - a better than average whiskey. not overly sweet but enough to keep the palate happy with a medium finish. 2019 release - recalibrated my taste buds for whiskey since this IS NOT a bourbon. it’s a sour mash whiskey. taste profile makes sense now. raising score to 4.

    was given this blind by gracious host of a dinner party who asked me what i thought of it. it was earthy, but not overly peated. sweet to the right levels . a wonderful balance of flavors that would make it enjoyable solo or with food. i guessed a special release highland park maybe. when he pulled out the bottle i was surprised & when i looked up the bottle i was even more surprised. one of the most elegant finely-tuned peated scotches i will probably ever have the chance of trying.
