Member Ratings and Notes
N: Big caramel, quite nectary, deep, roasted nuts.
P: Predominant rye influence, well balanced with a nutty sweetness.
F: Very clean, spicy, rye.
I think Mikey likes it! 
Nose is plain, slight caramel.  Palate is somewhat watery yet quite spicy.  This is definitely quite a decent bourbon -- it almost seems like a mix of bourbon styles.  With a very tasty result. 
Sweet on the nose, with some vanilla. This is a very light, sweet Bourbon, with a bit of a soapy flavor, some fruit and a sweet finish. I get nothing in the way of rye in this. It's smooth to the point of slick.  [Tasted Batch 06-92]
