Tasting Notes

"The nose is lighter than expected given the blend; there's some brown sugar and a whiff of nutty praline.The palate presents as a little sharper than a traditional, corn-dominant bourbon; rye spice surges along with oak. The end result seems a tad disjointed and angular--perhaps leaving bourbon enthusiasts perplexed and rye aficionados unsatisfied--especially at the price."
