    Not bad as an entry benchmark bourbon, but it's not as integrated as other entry level official bottlings of bourbons I've tried from the distillery.
    • Nose
      Sweet and yeasty-sour rising dough, walnut and almond oil, vanilla and cherries, citrus and brown sugar, mixed spices (nutmeg, ginger, coriander, dill, and turmeric) and oak.
    • Taste
      Brown sugar and mixed spices, a touch of autumn leaves and nut oil, vanilla and almond, and cinnamon dusted dried dark fruits.
    • Finish
      Dark chocolate cherry cordials, dark chocolate covered espresso beans, and oak.

    N- Sourish honey with waves of spicy grains, rye-ish, corn syrup and sweet bbq sauce. Woody notes of paper, plum and maple.

    P- Sticky and spicy, fragrant menthol mouthwash. Rough and generic bourbon.

    F- Short-medium with abundant of heats, dry, peppery and spicy.

    No masterpiece, however, not expensive. Thus, okay.
    • Nose
      Artificially sweet, somehow like the green apple "Hubba Bubba" chewing gum. Citrus fruits, lemon foremost. Hints of cacao powder. Muscat. The typical dusty corn aroma.
    • Taste
      Very sweet, a bit too much. Caramelized corn. Dark chocolate, only some hints of bitter and toasted oak.
    • Finish
      Short and one-dimensional finish, not intense. Still sweet, some roasting flavor.
