Member Ratings and Notes
Nose is sweet, and very nutty -- with caramel and toffee notes -- sort of like peanut brittle. Some tobacco too. Palate is medium-sweet, with nutty notes, caramel, vanilla, and apple hints. None of that is particularly strong, though, and overall it's a very slight palate. But that, I believe, is the whole point of Tennessee Whiskey, and this has achieved it well. Finish continues the theme, and is warming-to-hot. Gets a bit rough as the glass drains. Given the comparable price point, in the battle of Tennessee Whiskies, this is the sweeter, more-flavorful, and I would say better one... without "too much flavor" to deter the folks who come to this sort of whiskey in the first place. And I do personally enjoy it quite a bit!  That Bit-O-Honey, Honey-Nut-Cheerios thing really hits me nicely.
N: Ya can really smell the sugar maple charcoal, like maple syrup.
P: Spicy and sweet.  Quite delicious actually.  Wish I had found you sooner!  Clean rye in a sugar coating.
F: French toast with powdered sugar and syrup.
I'm really surprised here, blown away that such a great whiskey isn't more popular.
