|Jason||This is a full-bodied bourbon and is not light on the palette. The alcohol level for me warrants adding a little splash of water. Due note that this tasting was only with ice. It is complex and I had trouble wading through the alcohol – but once you do this you will find many flavors to explore. Check it out.|
|Tripp||It is 100 proof people! A very different taste – more fruit and sweetness than wood and earth. Incredibly smooth for a 100 proof bourbon. This bourbon has the coolest of all the bottles; even rivaling Willets. The sweetness and flavors can be enhanced with a splash of water and the overall taste is very palatable. I wonder if I would have liked it as much…without the cool bottle? It might just be the single best gift bourbon of them all.|
