Member Ratings and Notes
Sku
 
The nose has sweet caramel with, strawberries, raspberries and red licorice. The initial palate is intensely fruity with apple candy, then it picks up some spice, but it fades quickly, leaving a sweet, fruit candy finish on the nose and some pepper on the tongue. This definitely has some of the Maker's style candy sweetness, though more fruit comes out than in Maker's. It's a decent bourbon, candy sweet to be sure but not overwhelmingly so, and the spice adds some nice balance.

Rounded initial taste, but gains some heat and alcohol sharpness in the middle that carries through. Cinnamon candy sweetness with dusty spice in finish. Overall I didn't catch the wheat as a main flavor element to this. Came off as just a high corn mashbill bourbon [B-/C+].
