"PennyPacker is exactly what it says--a bang for your buck. There’s a quick, easy nose of vanilla, caramel, and alcohol before it transitions to a smooth mouthfeel. A little doughy near the finish but to be expected from young whiskey. Nothing too special, but also nothing to scoff at with its easy-drinking price. "
