Continuing with my theme of Bourbons this was one that was supposedly a real bargain. Bourbons can be very expensive in the UK and this one is at an entry level price point along with Buffalo Trace at £20.
This is fairly pale for a bourbon which makes it look young in the glass. Oily and a golden straw colour.
The nose gives me aniseed, corn, spices and sweet. Lots of vanilla and a little citrus.
Palate is smooth, lots of vanilla, honey, a little liquorice, corn. It's a bit thin and the finish is fairly short. Nice but not as good as the Buffalo Trace. Very easy drinking but it doesn't set the world alight.
