No tantalizing backdrop to this review. Just plain ol social-distancing “make a dent” pour in my entry to semi-mid level bourbon stash. Let’s get into it, shall we: N: The nose comes in very sweet upon first whiff. I get hard toffee candy and vanilla bean ice cream as the top notes. Checks all the classic bourbon fragrances. P: Sweet Corn cereal dominates the palate upon entry. An infusion of crushed corn kernels permeates the tongue and through the nostrils as you “chew” on the juice. It’s followed by vanilla wafers and thick maple brown sugar, which starts to turn bitter at the end. F: Finishes long with a tingly spice on the sides of the tongue and some burnt sugar bitterness, that is not necessarily unpleasant. Overall/Conclush: Solid bourbon. Nothing extraordinary. 3.25 - 3.5 ⭐️ This could come back into my rotation after I get through the “B” section of my collection, which at my current addition-to-subtraction ratio/rate, will be in another lifetime. Another way of saying that it does not warrant a glitch in the matrix of my linear whiskey trajectory. I guess that says it all. Cheers friends!
