Tasting Notes

"Not as grassy of a nose as its older brother Beam but there’s a lot more corn present. The bourbon has a sweet mandarin-orange tea quality. It’s quite palatable with a roasted peanut finish. Great pairing with an ice-cold can of PBR or Old Stag. Adding a couple of dashes of Angostura bitters and rich simple syrup makes a pretty nice Old Fashioned cocktail as well. "
