  • Excerpt: While this may not be something you want everyday, it's nice to bring out for special occasions. Wouldn't do much beyond an Old Fashioned for a cocktail.

  • Excerpt: Overall, this isn’t really blowing my mind. It’s light, sort of scant on character. Sweet, light, a bit muted. It’s kind of like Bourbon Lite.
