The nose on this has a lot of fruit candy. I'm talking Juicy Fruit gum (or maybe it's Fruit Stripe gum), also some Kraft caramel cubes and vanilla, very nice stuff. The palate also has a lot of candy notes, but now I'm getting salt water taffy, more caramel, and English Toffee ice cream. The finish has toffee. Despite all of the candy flavors, this isn't cloyingly sweet and has a richness of body that makes it quite pleasant and drinkable, if not overly complex.
Gold-orange hue. A fair amount of oak and alcohol vapor on the nose -- not complex. Usual bourbon qualities of oak spice and vanilla on the tonguhe. Signs of life on the finish. 1976 bottling - 4 year. [3/10/13]
