  5. KayMeertens scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    More than acceptable entry level bourbon, but I tasted it after two Blanton's and it couldn't compete. 
    • Nose
      Candied orange, caramel, strawberry, vanilla and spice.
    • Taste
      Caramel, raspberry, pepper, vanilla and a bit of peach.
    • Finish
      Raspberry, caramel, wooden planks and vanilla.

  6. wisekycourse scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    On the nose, something other than vanilla and caramel: orange fruits. On the palate, it's the pleasant surprise, a sweet, subtle fragrance that still denotes!
    In the finish, a creamy sensation of almonds, fruits, the return of molasses and alcohol that is very discreet!
    a good bourbon that stands out at a bargain price!

  8. Mr.Sandwich scored this whisky 63 points Expert Senior

    An upscale bourbon from Beam.
    • Nose
      Strong oak aroma combines with a touch of vanilla, lots of spice and roasted nuts.
    • Taste
      Strong mouthfeel with a light burning sensation and tart aromas of charred oak, corn, honey and vanilla.
    • Finish
      Voluminous long, spicy-sweet and warming.
