My first review, while these are public they are made mostly for my own reference. So excuse my brevity.

Nose: wave of vanilla, some banana, honey and orange zest.

Palate: Sweet, strong notes of vanilla, honey and butterscotch.

Finish: The butterscotch really lingers for a while, and I finally start to get the rye.

@main, is this from a new bottle? You will probably find that ER10 grows and develops very nicely with oxidation. With my bottle of it I would probably have rated it 82-84 in the early going, but later it tasted more like 88 to me.

Beat me to it @Victor. For whatever reason most Bourbons I have encountered are better halfway thru the bottle then they are when u first crack them open. I guess they just need to breathe a bit. I think 82 is a fair first pour score, but I believe this whiskey scores several points higher once it has opened up after being open a while.

Thanks for the tip, gentlemen. It was indeed the first pour, minutes after opening. I'll be sure to update my scores if I find anything new has developed.
