  • Excerpt: The palate reveals more vanilla, as well as almonds, honey, toffee, and gingerbread. Chocolate, baking spice, pepper, leathery oak, and tobacco leaf complete a long, sinewy finish that shows its maturity well.

  • Excerpt: When the spices fade there's some sweet corn which is quickly drowned out by a long vanilla fluff finish. And just like that the show is over.

  • Excerpt: This is a bourbon whiskey that I would definitely want on my bar. It is very complex and offers a lot of the flavors that I really enjoy. This is one you could go back to and pick something different out every time. If you can find it for retail, this is a solid purchase.

  • Excerpt: I’ve only encountered a few blends using light whiskey, most of which ran too hot for my liking. This one hits the mark on heat but leaves me wanting just a little more flavor, particularly at this price.
