A bought a little sample of this with a sample of Larceny by Old Fitzgerald and a fifth of Rittenhouse Rye 100 proof BiB. Reviews will be forth coming... Anyways review incoming.

Nose: Caramel galore with small bits of vanilla, spice, and amounts of alcohol float across my nose. Not much going on here..

Body: Upon swirling, thin, relatively fast moving legs trickled down the side of the glass. Kind of watery mouthfeel as it is swirled around the mouth.

Taste: Vanilla, toffee, herbal hints of mint, and what is believed to be rye/pepper. This is a bourbon on the spicier side which I like but it isn't very complex.

Finish: Short with a slight tongue tingle, spicy with rye and pepper.

Overall: From memory this is much better than the White Label bottling. The nose was boring and one dimensional. It didn't seem to benefit from the tiny bit of water that I added. The finish did seem to last longer though. I wouldn't mind using this in some classic whiskey cocktails.
