    Young corn on the nose, but you can tell there is going to be a difference with the blue corn. That corn scent comes in the form of buttered, honey cornbread. Hell, it's even easy to smell some buttery caramel sauce in there, too. Impressive for such a young bourbon, but if you start with good grains, this should be no surprise. The grains is what rules this taste. There is very little barrel flavor (although it is there), with the vanilla and caramel being what comes through, and none of the char or smoke. As I thought, I can tell this Texas blue corn is much sweeter than Midwest corn, which is likely how this super young product can be enjoyed by those who are looking for that sweet bourbon flavor. The finish on this starts to bring about some berries and a fruitiness, with maybe a tiny wisp of smoke. This reminds me of those cheap, iconic extremely sweet bourbons that everyone claims to ride or die with. I've found that all of those bourbons are very unrefined, and just taste like corn juice with alcohol tied to it. This, however, tastes like a product that the distillery actually is proud of and aimed to make, and for that, I appreciate the final offering. I'm not sure where I would use this, because unless it's a very fruity or citrus heavy cocktail, I don't see this working, and it's certainly too young to poor alongside flagship bourbons that are aged much longer.

    Nose vanilla, Carmel. Palate creamy charred corn with a finish that to me tastes like banana. Very unique bourbon and at $26 well worth it

    Nose: Honey-glazed ham. Very dense, dark, and deep. Ripe fruit (plums, raisins, dark cherries). Classic caramel and vanilla with oak but not in the spotlight. Taste: Deep, dark molasses sweetness that turns to bitter coffee/cocoa, then finishes with dry oak. Tannins. Almost numbing the tongue. Smooth finish, but dry.
