(Notes) This whiskey has all the buzz words. Small batch, port barrel finished, etc. It doesn’t have the punch or complexity that we were hoping for though. The quality is good, but it’s light and the flavors are muddled. It’s very comparable to Basil Hayden’s.
I don’t think any of us would turn down a glass of this, but suffice to say none of us would pay $50 a bottle for it. On the other hand, if a friend was looking for a $50 bottle to give as a gift to someone who was new to whiskey, this is what I would recommend.
