This is an anniversary bottling of Early Times American whiskey. It is quite vocally noted to be distilled at DSP-354 (Brown Forman) and it is bottled at 50% ABV.
Sweet honey, caramel, cotton candy. Clover, grassiness, toffee and confectioners sugar. Banana candy and light, faintly floral essence.
Medium mouthfeel, sweet toffee, confectioners sugar. Faint pepper, surprisingly oaky, and overall a very sweet dram.
Medium length, grassy essence returns, lots of toffee and sweet caramel.
This was really shockingly enjoyable. It is perhaps a bit too sweet, but still very enjoyable nonetheless.
