Malt Advocate 84 points - y far the “sweet spot” when compared to its siblings. The most versatile and the best value of the entire portfolio. Good enough to enjoy neat, but economical enough to use as a mixer. Caramel corn, vanilla, soft nougat, light barrel char, gentle fruit, hint of cinnamon and nutmeg.Value Pick.

Wine Enthusiast 91 points - With its tawny hue, smooth caramel and maple notes braced up with a slight oaky edge and buttery finish, this is a whiskey to savor. Try it in a Manhattan. - K.N. (Nov 2014)
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 88 points - Harvest gold color. Sooty aromas of fireplace ashes, tobacco leaf and lanolin vie for attention. In the mouth, the base flavor is toasted grain while supplementary tastes of almonds and dried fruit accentuate the corn. (Mar 2012)

Sweet caramel and rye bread nose. Light- to medium-bodied palate with delicate caramel and brown spices. Finishes with a brush of peppery heat and drying charcoal-like tannin.
