nose: vanilla, earthy, classic bourbon sweetness. but also a strong glue and chemical note. can't expect to much for a young spirit like this.

taste: again some earthiness combined with some vanilla and raspberry notes. some citrus notes with green banana.

finish: quite short ending but the american oak note persists quite long giving a vegetable and woody taste to the palate, again hints of green banana.

summary: ordinary supermarket bourbon, but at least in my opinion the best one compared to jim beam and jack daniels. the young age still gives a metallic note with quite strong evidence of glue and alcohol. but all in all in this case you get what you've paid for. okay for an occasional sip or perhaps to use for mixing.

Like with most bottles of spirit the taste becomes more gentle and rounder with time. After a couple of months on my shelf this bourbon revealed itself as absolutely enjoyable for non pretentious occasions.
