Great for the price. Vanilla, honey, banana nose, sweet but thin flavor. Easy to drink, nothing special, not bad at all.

General description

Nose: Cherry, spruce, ocean mist
Palate: Cherry cough syrup, herbal honey, piney wheat

Medium-light body, weak finish, no heat

I agree with the masses that you get a very solid bourbon here for a poor quality price. So it’s worth having on hand as a value pour with some unique flavors. Many may object to its mild qualities in terms of heat I expect, but sometimes a real easy, quick taste is called for, at least for some.

General description

straightforward corn sweetness on the nose, maybe some caramel if I'm generous. initial tongue burn, leads into one note, corn, finishes longer than I'd expect with more sweet.

Underrated definitely, I would absolutely prefer this from jack Daniels any day and even beam, red label. You can taste that sour mash straight away from the first sip it’s beautiful for that price.. not so complex flavors but has a prominent charred barrel notes also leather

General description

While this bourbon lacks complexity of more expensive bourbons, it does not disappoint especially for the price. Sweet nose with hints of vanilla and oak and relatively smooth finish. Not bad to sip neat on a cold winter night.

Nose

sweet and oaky

Palate

vanilla and oak

Finish

relatively smooth medium finish with perhaps almost a hint of pecan?

This is good for the $14 price. Smooth is the word. Not complex and a bit too smoky for my taste. For a few dollars more, just get the EW 1783.

General description

Lots of wood upfront. Sadly it lacks smoothness and complexity. I would talk this as a very good mixer... especially if you're looking for a Woody bourbon to mix with

Nose

Wood, vanilla

Palate

Not the smoothest, nutty, caramel, pepper on the back end

Finish

Ethanol, stale tobacco, dry

For when someone wants Blanton's Bourbon mixed with Soda and they can't tell the difference.

Charred and oakie with smoke and pepper.
