General description

I like wheated bourbons, but there isn't anything special about this one despite what it says on the label. A good value for the price though.

General description

was expecting more from the "Poor mans pappy" But then again I'm not a massive wheat fan. If you're in to a smooth whisky there's better options in this price range. But all in all a good bourbon. just not a great bourbon.

Nose

sweet raisin and honey.

Palate

Very mild. Same as the nose: raisin and honey. A bit too smooth for my liking.

Finish

Oily and sweet but short with a slight alcohol burn

Great tasting whiskey and very smooth. Taste as good if not better than some whiskeys at twice the money.

General description

You can't go wrong at $20. And at the end of the day it's still a $20 bottle of bourbon. It's smooth and easy to drink, however the alcohol does hit you at times. There are hints of apple, caramel, honey, and vanilla all tied together by the wheat with the oak coming through on the finish and lingers afterwards. A pretty good buy.
