    I'm usually a scotch drinker and bought this almost on a blind buy. Wow - so glad I did. I've only tried a few bourbons but this is easily the best by a significant margin and is up there with the very best scotch whiskies.

    Silky smooth, warm syrupy and slightly fruity flavour (cherries). Can't believe that something this strong doesn't need watering down and can be enjoyed neat. Lovely sipping whiskey.

    Tremendous bourbon. Comparing alongside WLW 2016 and Elijah Craig Barrell Proof B517 and this blows the Elijah Craig away and is in the same league as the WLW.
    Deep notes of molasses, cherry, caramel, treacle on the nose. The palate is similar, going more to cinnamon and nutmeg in the finish.

    I rate it almost as highly as the WLW in terms of quality. Not the most complex bourbon but has so much flavour and hits all the right notes without being too oak-driven.

    In fact I think this is a perfect bourbon for a whiskey drinker who likes to sometimes drink bourbon. Hardcore bourbon fans might want more wood influence, but for me that dry oak note is too off-putting. This has very little oak influence compared to other bourbons including the WLW
