TX Blended whiskey from FR Distilling. A no age statement Texas bourbon, price $38.99 Sampled 8/4/15 with 3/4 teaspoon of water in a Glencairn spirits nosing glass. Aroma - Vanilla cake, cookie dough, heavy caramel and yellow cake. Taste - Vanilla, insanely heavy caramel, cherry cookie, almond, marzipan, butter, cola, maple and short bread cookies. Finishes with a medium/quick fading flavor and no burn. Final score : 1.5 / 5, if ever such a thing existed as children's whiskey, this would be it. It's just so sweet with so many confectionary notes and no savory to round it out or balance them that I can't give it a high score. Might be a good starting whiskey for someone who doesn't like whiskey but wants to get into it or give it a try, but most seasoned drinkers I imagine will find this one unpalatably confectionary. Will not buy again.

    You should try their straight bourbon if you think the blended whiskey is too sweet for your taste. Completely different palate

    Great description... But I didn't mind the sweetness. A fun, occasional drink
