Member Ratings and Notes
On the fruitier side, that bubblegummy-fruitiness.  But it finishes rough and alcohol-y, and though the finish is lengthy it's not particularly good.  Presumably this is intended to be drank on the rocks (given the sort of mass-market availability and popularity), and it's better that way, but still "eh."  
N: Nougat and Jagermeister.
P: Dry bitter wood initially, but then opens up with some sweet vanilla.
F: Brash and hot, that bitter woodiness returns and linger.  
Not a very graceful whisky, I'd guess this was 4 years old if I was tasting blind.   Not impressed. 
Simple bourbon.  I agree with Adam, this is probably something people like to add to their ice.  Not bad at all.  But very simple.  
n: molassas and matchsticks



p: Spicy and a bit more bitter than most bourbon. Doesn't quite achieve the rich flavors of the best bourbons but definitely isn't as offensive as some of its cheaper counterparts.



Gets a feelgood prize for participation and average-ness.

N: Candy corn, maple syrup and molasses. A fair bit dry oak and sour fruit.


P: Vanilla sweetness with prominent oak and astringency.


F: Bitterness of steamed dark green leafy veggies.



Smelled good but the taste didnt hold up.
