    It doesn't have any real standout personality traits.
    • Nose
      Bourbony. Chocolatey, but not real chocolate - chocolate fudge? Riesen? Deep in the background maybe orange zest, or maraschino cherry. Ever had a Lowney's Cherry Blossom? It's like that.
    • Taste
      Bourbony. Comes in waves of sweet and bitter. The sweet contains typical caramel, but also maybe waffles ... no, it's cornbread. The bitter is a delicate coffee bean bitterness. Nice, unpretentious, straightforward with few subtleties.
    • Finish
      On the thin side, for the proof. Medium length with mostly the bitterness remaining.

    Tasted neat in a Glencairn glass after rested for about 5 minutes...

    Appearance: A bourbon like amber

    Nose: caramel apples, a yeasty bread-like smell I also get from Woodford Reserve, I also find wood notes, not charred but fresh. Overall it reminds me a lot of WR.

    Taste: The taste brings back the wood and yeast, and a slight char that wasn't present in the nose, barely there. There is salt. Still a semi-sweet apple presence.

    Finish: A medium finish that is quite bitter and I still taste apple and wood.

    Overall: I don't think I'm a fan, it's not terrible, but between this and WR, I would choose WR. I think if the woody notes were more oaky and less fresh it would be a lot better for me. I give this a 79/100.

    Why is this added under UD? The distiller is Brown-Forman.
