Member Ratings and Notes

Nose:  Not much really, some alcohol fumes and a perfumy character.
Palate:  Sweet rubbing alcohol, vodka with sugar and vanilla extract and a few drops of cough syrup. 
Finish:  Vanilla Extract. 

This has no discernible bourbon characteristics.  The only question I'm left with is most wanted by whom?

N: Rubbing alcohol. If I really pay attention I can almost get a faint hit of white dog sweetness but - nah, I think it's just rubbing alcohol. A little vanilla/cake cone aroma. 

 

P: Oily at first, a little thick. Some slight raw sugar sweetness. Generic alcohol note. No real flavor. Tastes young.

 

F: A little hint of nail polish remover, some late heat, a little sugar and a touch of vanilla syrup.

 

The fake vanilla taste really wrecks this. There's nothing I'd ever willingly come back to on this.

Tasted Blind:

 

 

N: Is this whisky? Cereal and loads of vanilla extract. Smells very artificial.

P: Vanilla and...um more vanilla. Kinda cough syrupy sweet (artificial)

F: none

 

 

I couldnt believe this was bourbon. After the reveal I poured a bit more to try to find the bourbon"y" notes. I couldn't and subsquently dropped this from a C- to D+ b/c there is no boubon character here. It was an artificial vanilla flavored drink.
