Virgin Bourbon 7 Year 101

You can still find it in some southern states, but that’s becoming less the norm. Basically Evan Williams 1783, just aged a bit longer, Virgin is bottled at a higher proof and is a great deal for an under $20 price tag when you can find it.

"On the nose: Fake maple syrup, rye and a faint hint of cigarette smoke. Palate has a back-of-mouth heat, Tennessee whiskey sweetness, vanilla and rye. The finish is quick, sweet, and with more rye on the back end. "
