Toasted coconut party. Great example of a great single grain whisky. B/B+

A pure bourbon nose was matched at first sip with sweet bourbon caramel, turning spicy and then ending with a taste of honey (tasting much sweeter than wine). The late honey on the palate gave it an almost Canadian Whisky type of profile, but like the best Canadian Whisky ever. The finish was drier with spice and coconut. It was sweet and delicious and fun to drink.

 

B+/A-

NOSE
Caramel, toasted grain, vanilla, waxy fruit, Tootsie Rolls and spice with a light bit of butterscotch and a bit of coconut. Water brings out the coconut in a big way.

PALATE
Caramel, toasted grains, dill, vanilla, waxy fruit, Tootsie Rolls and spice with more light wood and coconut. Here too water pulls the coconut up to a prominent position.

FINISH
Medium fade of caramel, wood, vanilla, dilly spice and coconut.

- It's like a combination of bourbon and scotch that was cut with coconut water, which is equal parts interesting and weird. I’ll definitely be revisiting at the LAWS bar in the future to see how time and air treats it and if it’s worth an updated score. -
