Good price, nice proof but not a lot of flavor most young corn
Sweet on the tongue
Hot finish with young whiskey corn aftertaste
I like wheaters and this one fits the bill. The nose is very alcohol forward. Very strong alcohol. After a bit, some of the alcohol dissipates. A bit of apple cuts through along with browned butter. The flavors are of what you would expect from wheated bourbon. The alcohol is not noticeable in the flavor profile. I get a lot of butter and apple. Almost like apple pie without spices added. The mouth feel is thick and smooth. The same with the finish. It's warm and lingers nicely. After a splash of water, the butter flavors warm up even more, but some unexpected heat arrives.??? It really is a nice pour. I am afraid I have to rate it on flavor between Maker's and Maker's 46. However, at $19.99 and 100 proof, it has to be closer to 46 for the money. I really can't find much fault with it.
