Nose: sweet and buttery and thick. A typical good bourbon nose from Beam. Strong and nutty Palate: thick and rich. Nutty and the Kentucky hug is very much there. Finish: a little peppery finish much like a really good knob creek private pick. Lingers around like Booker’s does Overall: I’d compare this to a really good 15 year KC pick like they used to do. it’s 108 proof it drinks right at it. The color is insanely dark and you can tell it’s well-aged. From the initial pour after opening I’m loving this. The price is insanely high when you compare it to the old 15 year KC picks, but with a new label, extra stuff like leather strap and a can to put the bottle in, and a good story behind the label, and the infamous “limited release” tag…that’s what you’re paying for. Would I get multiple to drink? Just 2-3 extra bottles probably. It’s a great classic bourbon with a good story that’ll be brought out for special occasions but I don’t see this being an epic unicorn in a few years.
