Rater Comments
Jason I like their hats and they make their bourbon to be consumed in quantity.  To so I recommend mixing it rather than drinking it straight.  But if you like shots this is a good shot – low in viscosity and flavor. Oh he also started a college in Florida too – can't be good at everything!
Tripp This is a very thin bourbon.  There is not a lot of deep flavors. The flavors I do get are earth, spice and a little bit of vanilla.  I would consider this much more of a mixing bourbon than a sipping bourbon.  For the price, I can think of far better drinks.  Stick to hats Stetson.
