I mean, if this was still available at $7 a bottle as it once was (and still is on some very dusty shelves somewhere), I'd be buying it by the case. This is massively drinkable, yet still not without medium-bodied, medium-rich flavor. It's not magic, it's just darn tasty... especially since the few bottles of this I've picked up have cost nearly nothing. B/B+
This is just about the most drinkable bourbon I've ever tried. Nose is confection, like Cinnabun frosting. There's a perfect balance of spice and buttery sweetness. At 40% it's surprisingly rich in flavor, and the flavor continues to grow long onto the finish. Ya just want more and more and more. Great stuff!
[Our theory here is that Beam was using up the old stock of whiskey from the original distillery, and therefore this may be much older than 4 years old. Surely something is different, since all the other Old Taylor we've tried, even pre-1972, is very thin on flavor.]
