Rater Comments
Jason I have always been a person who will choose a dessert over an appetizer; so I like this.  It is sweet and leaves an after taste that lingers for a few moments.  It is like eating an alcoholic Sugar Daddy.
Tripp This is like biting into a caramel candy filled with a tiny amount of whisky. To say this whiskey is sweet would be an understatement, it is saccharine sweet to the point of losing some of its complexity. There is still a hint of flavor, but it is drowned out by sugary vanilla and caramel…. drink this as an after dinner cordial. Is this a bourbon?
