The nose on this is oaky, a bit nutty, with good sweet bourbon notes. The palate is sweet with light minty notes. Some rye spice comes on mid-palate and continues on to the finish.
This is a fine bourbon. It's sweet and fairly light. It's not complex but is an easy drinker. It has a lot in common with the standard Evan Williams and could well be from Heaven Hill. If this were $10 cheaper it would be easy to recommend. At $30, though, it's a bit out of its weight class.
