General description

One of my favorite bourbons, though agree it is now sadly overpriced and difficult to find. But the taste, NOT overrated at all. Oak, Carmel, and a spicy aftertaste make this special. I was able to buy a 1.75L a couple years ago at $150 - but you’re lucky to find it now at this price for even a 750mL.

Nose of oak and caramel. More mouthcoating than expected for 90 proof. Caramel taste profile lead to a well balanced finish.

General description

A huge hit of cherry and vanilla. Super sweet, followed by a peppery bite that keeps it interesting. A good bourbon, but not worth some of the markup prices. If you get it at MSRP it’s awesome.

Standard in wheat flavor that enters aside the bourbon expectation. Balanced well throughout the berrywooded stoney oak welcomed bite. Top value in bourbon.
