    Aroma of fresh rain in a pine forest. Taste starts with pine and then you get pineapple in the development. Body starts out light and the finish gets dense and lasts for minutes. Just barely a hint of smoke. Flavors on the back end that I really cannot identify its so unique. Really opens up

    If you love cult status whiskey and you have money to burn this is the bourbon for you. It is nuanced, very well made. But...It is not worth the $130 price point. Its good. But not that good. I'd rather go to scotch whisky at this price point. If it were $80 I would buy it again.

    Give it time in the glass. Too be sipped over time. DON'T put any drops of water like I did at first. Take your time and it will mellow out. Not overly sweet. More nuanced. Dare I say more "sophisticated" bourbon? Menthol, butterscotch, candy apples. Getting marzipan which I assume from the higher content of barley. Hints of vanilla, leather, and nutmeg. I assume vanilla from good casks, leather from the age, and nutmeg from the rye. A hint of brewed tea. All that said I really like Russells 10 year reserve because it is richer is taste and mouthfeel. Both are good. Both are different.

    I prefer this Lagavulin to the OB 16 year old. Had a pour at a bar. My advice is to put 2-3 drops of water and let it sit for 20 minutes. It really opened up. It was good from the start but got even better.

    If you’re an experienced whiskey drinker I wouldn’t bother. Nothing special. Rather bland and has the shortest finish for a 10 year old. Maybe more than 40% alcohol would help? It got more bland as the fill went down. Seemed more like flavored water with alcohol added. Having said that. It would be a great introduction to a non whiskey drinker. Not challenging at all. At this price point I will not recommend.

    A high barley content, 49%. So it is not as sweet if it had corn or higher rye %. You get the grassy, cereal notes you would expect from barley, with a slightly sweet flavor with nuanced spices, including pepper from the rye. Local liquor store brought it in but now discontinuing because no ones buying. Price point is $50ish but the odd mash bill turns people away from trying. I’m glad I did.

    Tastes of charred corn. Heavy wood tannins for me are too overwhelming. Maybe a little more age will help? Short finish. Good potential.

    If you are a whiskey purist..DON’T BUY! The port will ruin it for you. But I found it interesting and unique. Sweet, smooth, chocolate, vanilla, with sweet wood tannins. On the nose I do get rye notes. Good for after dinner. This one could be enjoyed by those who say they don’t like whiskey.
