I tried this about 4 years ago right at the Stranahan's Distillery in Colorado and was not impressed enough that I'd ever want to pay $50-$60 for it. Either it has really matured in the last four years or I just didn't have my taste buds right on that first try. This is an excellent whisky. It doesn't taste like bourbon, nor does it taste like scotch. It's just a very nice whisky. A very nice, floral-like nose. The taste and finish give me vanilla, caramel, banana, peach, and other a bit of apple. Some oil with a good medium-long finish. I found this for $40.00 at our big, local discount store, Total Wine. I'll buy it at that price. It's quite good.
