    Oak and vanilla on the nose, Palate is dominated by oak with some underlying sweetness, ending with a dry/tannic medium finish. Pretty disappointing given the price. It's by no means terrible, but there are plenty of other options that are not only better but also cheaper.

    Tasted in a Canadian glencairn with a chip of ice Nose - caramel, honey roasted nuts, and a hint of leather and spice Palate - sweet up front, with a rich mouth feel followed by nuts and spice. Finish - long, lingering finish of oak and spice, but without the astringent tannic notes. The finish is really nice, probably the high point for me. Surprisingly smooth for the proof It wasn't especially complex, but it finishes on a high note. I'd rate this 4.25

    No barrel pick, just the standard SiB with the old label. Nose - pretty standard bourbon notes of caramel, vanilla and oaky spice along with some ethanol Taste - Spicy, with cinnamon and baking spices up front with pepper following on mid-palate. Medium finish with lingering heat. Adding an ice cube tamed the heat and spice, bringing out some of the sweetness. Not a standout for me, but solid bourbon especially if you like the 'Kentucky hug' and favor higher proofs.

    Color - medium-light copper Nose - caramel, vanilla, oak, and a fruit I can't quite place. Also a little more heat than I would expect for this proof. Taste - A fairly rich mouth feel, with caramel, vanilla, and baking spices and a hint of that fruit. Finish - medium with oak, tannins, and some lingering spice. A really good bourbon for the price, 3.75 stars.

    Texas Total Wine & More stave selection 2 x Maker's 46 4 x Roasted Fench Mocha 4 x Toasted Fench Spice 110.3 proof Nose - Apples, cinnamon, vanilla and oak. Taste - caramel, vanilla, cinnamon, and hint of fruit followed by baking spices and oak with some lingering sweetness on the medium finish. This took a while to open up. On first taste this was underwhelming, initially there was a lot of alcohol on the nose and the palate. A chip of ice and some breathing time improved things greatly. It definitely has more spice than Maker's 46 (I miss the cherry notes from that), I'm guessing due to the stave selection.

    Nose - maple syrup, vanilla, chocolate notes, with a hint of oaky spice. Also some toast/cereal grain. Got better and better as it opened up in the glass. Taste - Everything promised on the nose comes through on the palate. Definitely on the sweeter side, but there's enough going on to keep it from being one-note. Vanilla and oak continue on the somewhat short finish.

    Nose - caramel, vanilla, and tobacco Taste - some oak and spice up front, followed by a creamy vanilla finish as the warmth spreads, while the spice still lingers.
