Nose of apples, caramel, and laundry detergent powder (yes, my glassware is impeccably clean and scent-free... trust me). Palate is quite sweet and honeyed, with medium-spice levels and rye flavors. Green apples stick out, too. Finish is lengthy, and the heat lingers. The bourbon falls apart a little here. But this is a good, inexpensive bourbon that has real flavor while still being accessible to all.
Nose: A nice nose of oak and leather with strong apple/pear notes, to the point where I might have guessed it was apple brandy just going by the nose. Palate: Sweet at the start with those apple notes but then turns a bit flat, winding up with citrus notes. Tasting blind, I thought this was a wheater for the lack of much in the way of spice and the citrus notes. Finish: Fleeting finish but with a nice oak to it. Not bad.
