rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

The bourbon has a divine nose: tons of vanilla, brown sugar and caramel with a distinct sweet almond/biscotti scent coming through as well . It's rich and buttery to taste with lots of vanilla and cinnamon goodness on the palate, however it has some surprising cereal notes and a bit of pepperiness that keep it balanced. Outstanding.
Nose: There always appears to be fruit on the nose of this guy and here it is again: green, crunchy toffee apple, apricot and young melon. A little Swiss milk chocolate yodels its presence while the spices tease and prickle. All rather yummy...; Taste: Silk with attitude: Corn oil, honey and a few tongue-withering peppers; Finish: Dries, allowing a full look at the 12 years of oak...and that milk chocolate is back; Balance: Sheer quality. And an enormous leap in complexity and grace from the 7-yearold. Score: 93 Source: Jim Murray, Whisky Bible, 2012
