1st review so Im a little new to this.. A whiskey that reminds me of some times with a couple women I know hehe ...anyways.... Nose:Oak, vanilla, a little alcohol that's hard to shake. Body:Light possibly due to filtering (as with all Tennessee whiskies) Taste:Oak, not as sweet as a bourbon (esp. like Makers)a tad bit of vanilla some corn. Finish: Short for me its a little rough at the end. A little extra time in oak would help. Overall:I prefer bourbon when buying American not a fan of the charcoal filtering

Congrats on the first review, little tip on constructing reviews is to space the nose, body/palate and finish into separate paragraphs, makes it look a bit more pretty. On a side note I agree with your assessment on the maple charcoal filtering process. Never been a big fan of it myself.

I'm looking at this web site for the first time. Wow, the descriptions followed by the critic of descriptions! They say food shows are the new pornography. I'm wondering if hints of molasses and notes of toasted walnuts are words worthy of crates of booze being sent to my house for evaluation. I think I could make three paragraphs too (nose,body, finish). My mom used to work for a wine reviewer. She came home with a crate of wine every other day.

I had a mini on a United flight recently as this and Beam Black were all they had left. Ordered one of each and two cups. I was immediately reminded why I haven't had these since campus parties while in college. Both are awful! There are so many whiskies out there at similar prices that are so much better, so skip these. Even after adding lots of ice I still had trouble choking them down. Thank God Southwest (my usual carrier) carries Wild Turkey!
