45.2% (90.4 proof) – from Kentucky.
A friend of mine was in Tennessee and was at a liqueur store reading labels to me to see if I needed anything for my collection. Over the phone he read the name of this bourbon and then added…”it has a classy bottle”…. and I was sold. I am a sucker for a nice bottle. Call me superficial, I know the liqueur will be drunk! — Tripp
Tasting on the rocks.
Approx. $40 from VA ABC for a 750ml.

|Rater||Nose||Alcohol Burn||Taste Scale||Overall Score|
|Jason||Burn – is my first thought. As for my second thought, shudder – this is not my favorite. I did eat a chocolate cookie before this tasting – but I digress…|
|Tripp||Very Nice – too bad it has a little burn otherwise a great bourbon. A very nice drink, with sweet and smooth flavors. There is a definite alcohol taste and the sweets are sometimes covered by fire, but the overall taste is pleasing. Not my top bourbon, but a definite top tier.|
