Nose has that honey-mustard thing going on, in of course a bourbon variety. Good amounts of caramel. The palate is quite sweet and goes down really easy. There's almost a malty aspect to this as well, although of course it's not malted (unless someone is keeping a really weird secret). There are some spiritous edges that keep the rating down, but this is nonetheless quite good bourbon at a decent price
N: Light and sweet. Caramel upfront with a faintly floral and piney rye presence. A very faint touch of black cherries, lightly dry tobacco, a touch of black pepper.
P: Light but not entirely thin. Caramel and vanila lead with some gentle wood influence behind; a light dose of oranges and a fainter touch of orange zest. Suggestions of cinnamon, a hint of black cherry and a faint bubblegum touch.
F: Black cherry surprisingly leads with unexpected heat as well. Goes back towards caramel and vanilla with a faint hint of pineapple (pushing slightly towards Juicy Fruit gum). Gentle wood influence.
A nice easy sipper. Very well done with some good dimension. If some of the already fairly easy edges were sanded down (without yielding the flavor nuance) this would be a B+.
This has a nice, typical BT style nose with caramel, some spice and a touch of oak. The palate has a balance of sweet, rum like notes and more acidic notes. It's more acidic than I remember from previous bottles (of course, single barrels can always vary). The finish is acidic, with lemon rind and a bit spicy. It's a decent and well composed bourbon, though not one that I find particularly exciting.
