Member Ratings and Notes
Smells like tobacco, corn, a wisp of rye and white chocolate.  Oily yet watery, goes down real easy with a moderate sweetness and lingering woodiness.  Eh.  Relatively crappy. 

Light nose of pears, apples, and swimming pool.


Palate is kinda nice although light and fleeting; basically a watery sweetness. And though it's pleasing at first, the whole experience quickly gets very alcohol-y, and there's the problem. This one's fine to stay back in history.

Light amber color. Very traditional bourbon palate to me, with a lot of vanilla. The palate is very thin and watery, with hints of oak and vanilla. The finish lingers a little, but not that satsifying. 1978 bottling. [3/10/13]
