I enjoyed it more than I expected. It is a bargain to boot and quite tasty.

“Bourbon” as it gets for me. Vanilla, paint thinner, glue, coconut, and a lot

Sweet, slightly sour, orange juice, milk chocolate, fir honey and bark, a touch of leather
Warming, caramel, cloves, oak and nuts
- A typical bourbon.
Sweetness and solvents and the typical corn flavor of bourbon. The Aklohol numbs the nose
