This was a pickup for a birthday party i had sadly people around my age group cant enjoy bourbon unless they take shots of it.

This is going to be without water in my humble opinion it does not need it, but hey i will give it a shot and i might do another with water we will see.

Nose: I get charred oak, burned sugar, vanilla, spice, dark fruits and a smell that reminds me of coals. Palate: Is robust and strong a nice touch away from the macallan i got a lot of oak, burned sugar, dark fruits like plums, vanilla, rye to balance out the sweet and some maple syrup in there not to much like CR maple just enough to keep your taste buds awake. Finish: Kind of dry with more charred oak, some spices and burned sugar like a creme brulee topping. More character than four roses in my book and about 16 bucks cheaper, i highly recommend it for anyone who wants to get their first leap into bourbon, add water if you need it but the proof keeps it fun for me.

This is one of my favorite bourbons. Along with Buffalo Trace, there are no better bourbons for the money IMO. Thanks for the review.

It was very strong, and had more character than elmer t lee in my opinion while i enjoyed elmer it just didnt wow me like this one does most likely because of the cost and quality.

I really like robust bourbons so far, going to try knob creek single barrel next week and write a review.
