Tried this last night with a friend. I was dubious about the prospect, I'd read good and not so good reviews about this bourbon. It has a mash bill of 72% corn, 18% rye and 10% malted barley, and is aged between 6-7 years (for now). This all shows up in the flavor profile, and I agree with Rob Morton on almost everything. The nose is sweet, with some oak and a hint of wood stain , but the stain smell was not off putting for me. The palate was orange, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon (definitely can taste the rye notes), it also had a hint of red cherry licorice. I didn't find the finish astringent, there was a long lingering burnt orange taste. For the price point this is a decent bourbon. Bottled at 45.2 ABV , definitely enjoyed it. Oh, and so did my friend, a lot.
