Member Ratings and Notes
This is okay.  Nose of candy corn, some floral notes, and solvent.  Palate has significant spice, but otherwise not a whole lot going on.  Mildly sweet.  Finish is medium-long.  I'm not thrilled with the amount of fire here -- yes it's 100 proof, but it seems awfully scorchy for that level.  Admittedly, I'm not tasting this blind, and I was expecting something more from this... but even taking that disappointment into account, I think that I'd find this to be "eh" on any day. 
N: A bit solvent, rose petals.
P: Dry and spicy buttery.
F: Long burn.
A real disappointment, had expected something full and rich and it was anything but.    
Nose:  Woody old bourbon.
Palate:  The palate stars off nicely, sweet and toffeeish.  That sort of dissolves by mid palate and it gets a bit hot to handle, which is odd for its abv.  A few drops of water, though brings out some good candy/wood notes that are typical of older Old Taylors I've had.
Finish: woody.

Pretty decent especially with a bit of water.
