Sweet home, Kentucky...
The nose is Jim Beam but with tonnes of extra honeyed sweetness. The issue is that the honey dominates all else to the degree that the bourbon has to take a back seat and as I like Jim Beam, compared to JD, this disadvantages the whiskey.
Much as expected on the nose. The honey is perhaps a little too much, and the balance of whiskey and honey just isn't there. Too much of the honey. Something like Jameson Caskmates has tended to get it right in balance or slightly better is Ballantine's Brazil. Just honey flavour really with a hint of the vanilla and caramel with a smidge of spice.
Medium and with the sugary, honey sweetness dominant. If a sweet liqueur is your thing then this might be for you. I don't hate it but I wouldn't go for it again other than as a potential mixer in a cocktail.
