"While it possesses that familiar "green" quality of a young bourbon, there's enough character here to make it drinkable. Toasted corn coats the tongue with caramel flavors, though there isn't much fruit to pick. A fair amount of spice, both hot and sweet, comes in toward the finish, suggesting a strong presence of malted rye in the mash bill. It could definitely use more time in barrel to mellow, however it's got some legs. "
