"There's a good hit of rye in the mash bill, and this is very much in keeping with the amount of pepper and spice up front. Its got some sweetness to it, but not as much as with most bourbons, and it mellows out nicely with a bit of ice. People who whine about bourbon being too sweet might make peace with this one. This a great one to keep in your cheap bottle repertoire, especially if you are looking for something to mix with."
