So I was thinking that the Copper Pot Reserve was very similar to Buffalo Trace Bourbon. I have a very shallow cabinet and this is the closest that I have to relate to. The Copper Pot reserve is: Nose: Vanilla (matured in ex bourbon casks), toffee, rye spice and a bit of pepper Palate: Very mellow with a pinch of Rye Spice. The taste is as above with a hit of vanilla, rye and a sweet caramel/toffee note. Not complex but very nice indeed. Finish: Relatively short and again not complex but in a H2H with Buffalo trace wins out IMHO. This dram is very "smooth" and enjoyable The Copper Pot Reserve at $27. in my neck of the woods is a huge bargain compared to Buffalo Trace @ $40. and Lot 40 @ $45. Try it and I am sure you will like it especially if you enjoy a Rye hit. My wife who is a Gibsons fan has switched over to Forty Creek Copper Pot Reserve. She takes her medicine with water and ice and says that this Canadian "rye" has more flavour and a touch more punch,
