    Yellowstone used to be one of the most popular bourbon brands in Kentucky in the 1960's. It is still produced today by NDP Luxco as a bottom shelf whiskey. The whiskey in this miniature was distilled for the Italian market at now closed Glenmore Distillery in Owensboro, KY (DSP-24-KY). Probably somewhere in the 1960 of 1970's. The magnificent Chuck Cowdery wrote a history of Yellowstone: http://chuckcowdery.blogspot.nl/2009/12/history-of-yellowstone-part-one-of-two.html and  http://chuckcowdery.blogspot.nl/2009/12/history-of-yellowstone-part-two-of-two.html
    • Nose
      Sweet vanilla intermingled with notes of pine and mint. Wood varnish. Grassiness and herbs of carraway and cummin. Becomes a little soapy later on.
    • Taste
      Round and rich with rye spices and caramel. Hints of dried figs and dates. Oak dust. Beeswax. Some toasted almonds. Bitter chocolate at the end.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Molasses. Ginger. Menthol. A decent and quite complex whiskey from the heydays of bourbon.
