Thoughts: There’s nothing offensive about this, its sweet, straightforward and an easy sipper. But this in no way warrants it’s limited release status and the price it is selling for. It’s an alright whiskey that was put in a sexy bottle and selling given the current state of the whiskey market.

Score: 80 out of 100
