Isawa 1983 Vintage Review

Woodford Reserve, No Age Statement USA Bourbon at 43% Blind review of the Isawa 1983 Vintage

I recently took part in the Freestyle Blind Tasting contest which entailed being sent 5 blind samples, identified only by colour which i then had to nose and taste and send back my best guesses at. To be honest i was utterly rubbish at this but i will show below what my guess was for each whisky.

I had guessed that this was - Woodford Reserve, No Age Statement USA Bourbon at 43%

Tasting Notes & Details


Instantly quite light and creamy, leathery, leather coming in waves now, almost smoke like


Very smooth, creamy and leather


Finish goes then comes back as warmth, not alcohol burn
