Jim Beam Black Bourbon Whiskey 8 YO

IWSC Gold Outstanding Award Winner
Worldwide Whiskey - Bourbon - Kentucky - 6-8 YO

Comments: "Bold, rye on the nose with brown sugar and rich honey. Caramel and butterscotch follow. Big, rich and full bodied in the mouth with toffee, gentle vanilla and some molasses giving sensation of slow, deliberate flow across the palate. Sweet oak does a good supporting job. Lovely, warming swallow. A delicious experience."

Eagle Rare Single Barrel Bourbon 10 YO Whiskey

IWSC Gold Outstanding Award Winner
Worldwide Whiskey - Bourbon - Kentucky - Single Barrel - 10 YO

Comments: "Nose opens with the most inviting charred and caramelised oak and orange zest and loads of vanilla, old leather and ripe summer fruits. The palate is vanilla dominated to start then becomes more complex with almonds, chocolate, old leather and a hint of mint plus all the ripe summer fruits. Long, spicy finish where crème brûlée plays a part. Delicious whiskey."

Western Gold Bourbon Whiskey 6 YO

IWSC Gold Outstanding Award Winner
Worldwide Whiskey - Bourbon - Kentucky - 6-8 YO

Comments: "Concentrated citrus and rich honey on the nose with lovely, light bourbon backing. Slow entry onto the palate with easy flow and deep rich fullness without being heavy. In fact moves lightly and with elegance. Lovely mature flavours with caramel, malt, corn and a hint of smoke. Hints of banana and more honey lead into fine finish."

Hudson Baby Bourbon

IWSC Gold Outstanding Award Winner
Worldwide Whiskey - Bourbon - New York State - No Age Stated

Comments: "Vanilla, malt and honey dominate the nose. Gorgeous entry into the mouth where honey leads the way. Good grainy character with oily smooth flow across the palate. Corn, honey and oak enrich the palate. Good balance. More oak shows in drying finish"
