Tasting Notes by Max
Granted, I'm not a bourbon professor. But I liked Jim Beam and Jack Daniels for being different (than scotch) with plenty of playful vanilla.
And this bourbon just did not impress me at all. I tried it three times and found it too harsh, and way too oaky, with just a hint of vanilla. It has bitter taste and finish. What is it? Rye?
It tastes like cheap cogniac/brandy with oak dominating and bitter aftertaste.
Maybe it's a bad bottle, but I don't think I'm buying it again. There are other decent bourbons awaitng.
