(Notes) David Nicholson 1843 is a decent whiskey considering the proof. It’s easy to drink, surprisingly smooth, and is on the sweet side. All of this is a bit odd for a whiskey with this much kick to it. Most of the notes that were more on the negative side were about it being too sweet, neutral, and simple. Don’t expect bold flavor or much complexity from this one, it just isn’t there. It’s a really balanced burn though, and we all enjoyed that.
