Jason This has been in my liquor cabinet for years.  Obviously not the same bottle!  We like this as it tastes good on the rocks but if you want to dress up a Manhattan or whiskey sour this works really well.  Also a great entry bourbon for any of your neophyte friends.
Tripp Caramel and smooth with an underlying alcohol burn that helps bring the sweetness to the front. A house staple for me that I keep on my shelf at all times.  You can drink this straight or you can mix as the price to quality ratio is great. I highly recommend buying a bottle of ETL.
