    This is a solid whiskey though, given the hype, I thought it would be more balanced. Too sweet but otherwise good. Nose: Roasted nuts, vanilla, heavy brown sugar, and leather. Flavor: Toasted pecans, more leather, heavy caramelized sugars to the point where it was a little too sweet, baking spices, heavy vanilla. This had an excellent oily mouth feel that I really liked. Given the proof this was very muted in terms of the alcohol bite. Finish: Spice and leather with some alcohol burn. Not as long as I'd expect but long enough. Oddly enough the finish was very dry after such a sweet nose and initial flavor. Overall I'd give this a shot if you can find a pour but I wouldn't spend more than MSRP on it if you can find it as I've seen bottles at secondary going for $300 or more.

    A lot going on with this bourbon. Very aromatic. Big bold flavors, just enough burn, finishes nicely.

    Nose - Herbal and spicy with oak, maple and cola and a touch of spearmint. Palate - Oily tannic but balanced by burnt orange, caramel, root beer and an underlying sweetness. Finish - Medium with lingering sweetness and rye spiciness.
