World Whiskies Awards 2008
World's Best American Whiskey

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

Michael Jackson

Nose
Mint toffee. Fudge.
Palate
Mint toffees again. Dark fudge. Candied prunes.
Finish
Some astringency. Lots of alcohol. The two seem to round each other into one big punch (of the pugilistic type).
Comment
Ideal for Thanksgiving or Christmas. If you don't like your in-laws or the television, knock yourself out after dinner.

Dave Broom

Nose
Enormous! Darker, sweeter and richer than all the others put together. Marmalade, sugar candy, orange liqueur chocolates. Sultry.
Palate
Sufficient spiciness and structure to balance the huge waves of sweetness. Orange again. Shows complexity.
Finish
Long and sweet. Lingering.
Comment
A sweet mother for ya!
