Here in Australia, our colonial past has a connection with rum. We even had a Rum Rebellion. I'm a whisk(e)y drinker first and foremost, and certainly if American patriotism, culture and history can be summed up in one glass, I'm betting it's a whiskey. The stuff that Civil War soldiers sipped on (as opposed to the New South Wales Corps and their rum here)

Nose: charred oak, caramel, vanilla, cinnamon. This is such a fine tuned balance

Taste: vanilla, oak, baked apple pie

Finish: a long finish of oak, vanilla and some mint before finishing with a drying sensation

To is to be savoured and drank slowly. The ABV gives so much power without being over powering. This expression is affordable and readily available here and certainly something I will keep continue to keep stocked.

Definitely a really good bourbon! I am a WT fan and always have been. If you get a chance, get the Russell's Reserve Single Barrel. It's a bit less biting, but i think it is slightly better. I keep RRSB, WTRB and WR 101 around all the time, as I want a slightly different experience at times, but want it to be WT products, as they totally hit my taste profile. Another is Elijah Craig 12 YO Barrel Proof which has the same mash bill as WT, is 128-140 proof, and tastes awesome! Don't like the regular EJ 12 nearly as much.

Hello @Taco, I picked up a bottle of RRSB not long ago. I'm yet to open it, I had a hunch it may tick the boxes.
