This was gift for Jason after his wife had a fantastic weekend in New York City. This was a present and is really neat to have in your cabinet for guests to try. We must mention that this is a unique bourbon as it 100% corn and made in Gardinier, New York.
Tasting was done on the rocks.

|Jason||A really unique flavor one that you should really try – quite expensive at 375ml. Not one I will reach for but if someone is looking for different this is your choice. I have no plans to move to NY and this does not help.|
|Tripp||Come on New York; you can do better! As a native New Yorker, I was really hoping to love this bourbon. Fail. Not sweet and not particularly pleasant on the palate. I would not reach for this and the price makes it hard to buy. However, it remains a great novelty bourbon especially when considering the bottle. Not worth the money is the key thing to remember – yet a great gift idea.|
