WORLD'S BEST AMERICAN WHISKEY

George T.Stagg

Coconut, mom's apple and pear pie with cinnamon. Highly aromatic, cigar dipper and very big
Charles MacLean

Powerful alcohol and initial spice. Persimmon, orange notes detectable, but finishes with a whisper
William Dowd

Concentrated flavours, rich, full, robust, spicy cinnamon, prune, pepper.

Finishes even with dilution to 40% the alcohol bite is still pronounced
LeNell

Deep mahogany hue, pronounced aroma of oak, tobacco & vanilla.

Very rich flavor profile – cinnamon, dried orange peel, spearmint, star anise, dark chocolate and toasted coconut. The finish is long and intense, very dry and oaky Mike Miller Surprisingly restrained and attractive on the nose, with rich fresh plums and pears, honey and vanilla. Magnificent blend of candy, fruits, hints of spice, cocoa and tobacco pouch. Finishes like a Pink Floyd encore. Big, brash, colourful and goes on and on. Totally loveable. An unforgettable blockbuster
Dominic Roskrow
