Average Score: 83
Color and nose: This pour is mainly sandy taupe, but reflects darker colors; at certain angles it could pass as thinned wood stain. The nose is heavy with fruit and sweetness. Under some banana peeks sweet corn.
Taste and finish: Initially I was hit with corn, but that celeritously dissipated into a cacophony of charcoal and brown sugar. Not much spice or kick to speak of with this one. The finish returns to the banana and corn.
Overall: Like last week’s, I rate this whiskey a solid meh, too. Quite drinkable, but acutely uninteresting. 82/100.
Nose: full bodied and big, sweet bouquet suggests high alcohol; brown sugar
Taste: deceptively spicy following big aromatic punch
Finish: lingering warmth mellows to fig
Nose: pretty nice
Taste: Not bad. Dry with a little burn.
Finish: Slight burn continues
Overall: Nothing exciting but not a bad bourbon. 82
Nose: Musty with a heavy wood influence
Taste: watery mouth feel, with little in the way of flavor. Some caramel hints.
Finish: non-existent. Very short.
Overall: 80. Perfectly boring. Nothing to excite or disappoint.
Final words: The average score of 83 seems about right to me. There isn't a whole lot here in the way of flavor, but it is completely inoffensive. I'd like to see this released at 100 or 107 proof just to see if that dials up the flavor a little.
