N: Vanilla, sweet and malty with a little whiff of chocolate. P: Very bright, big burst of fruit, but remarkable how quickly it fades. F: Lingering taste is too oaky for me. There some really good things going on here, but it loses what it's got too quickly.
Nose is light, and fruity for a bourbon, notably with apples. Palate is medium-bodied, and as in the nose, it's kinda fruity for a bourbon -- and I distinctly taste apple juice notes. Yet with this it's still medium-rich and round. Finish is medium-length. All-in-all, this is a good and "refreshing" bourbon -- refreshing yet rich. I like it. A good buy, too. B/B+
The nose on this has some of the same candy notes as the White Label but with a dose of oak that gives it a bit more complexity. The palate is quite acidic without much flavor, then some chocolate malt notes, and then the bitterness kicks in. I actually think I like the White Label better than this. The main flavors in this are acid and bitterness and they don't play well together.
