Member Ratings and Notes
Sweet nose of melons, palate is unremarkable but generally smooth and inoffensive, finishes ok.  Not crazy about this, seems like it's made for the rocks. 
Very sweet nose, almost fruity very nice nose.  Does not stand up on the palate, the rye is faint, the flavor smooth but unremarkable.  Nothing offensive but nothing all that interesting either.   
Maple syrup, fruit, and raisins.  Bourbon and caramel.  Finish (or lack thereof) is disappointing.  
Great nose - very sweet. Taste of honey, hints of rye, hints of bourbon, a bit of spice. However, not much edge, not very "warm," and while easy to drink, very non-descript. Doesn't have as much rye character as I would like, but is a very drinkable whiskey.  
So sweet, so smooth, so easy.  Almost too easy.  Very pleasant to drink.  
Easy finish, nice bouquet.  Just sweet and nice.  I could drink this all night.  No water necessary.   
Nose is honey and maple.  Taste is smooth, barely a rye.  Finish is too subtle.   
Nose:  Soft rye notes.
Palate:  light rye, somewhat medicinal and fades to a general bitterness.
Finish:  Mostly bitter.
