World's Best American Whiskey

Sweet baby Jesus what is this? An extraordinary aromatic nose. The alcohol will sear your tastebuds so add some ice. Spicy. Wild at heart Dave Broom (from Whisky Magazine 70)

Intense, rich, complex. Fig jam, dates, candied chestnut. Lots of Turkish Delight. The same rich feel. The finish is warm and spicy. For those who like it hot Martine Nouet

Rye is kind of fashionable right now and this whiskey gives a good indication as to why. Bursting with juicy flavours but without the cloying sweetness sometimes found in some bourbons Dominic Roskrow

Concetrated full mouth feel that explodes with spices, cinnamon, clove and a bit of acetone. Very long mouth coating of rich maple and tingly spice LeNell

Fudge-dipped cherries, slightly salty. Spiced cocoa and maple, evocative of barbeque. Lingering fire and light, like the streak of a comet's trail Liza Weisstuch

Closed to start, spicy and minty with water, then oak lactones and pencil boxes; the taste translates the aroma well Charles MacLean

Earthy, vanilla-sweet rye with a tannic astringency. Hot, but defies its ABV and not a good swimmer. The vanilla slowly fades into more earthy and herbal notes. Typical, in-your-facewith- subtle-grain/grass-undertones, great American rye Davin de Kergommeaux

Agreeable smell of wooden boxes containing secrets, fruit tea bags and pipe tobacco. Then it develops into dark toffee and puff candy with the fruit sharpening all the time. Later comes menthol and woody spice. Very rewarding Robin Laing
