Observations

Color: Amber

Nose: Muted musty oak. There’s not much here for me, which is a disappointment but not surprising at

Palate: Caramel, honey, molasses.

Finish: Molasses, oak, mint.


Overall

If I had to use one word to describe this bourbon it would be “boring”. But that’s just me. I suspect there are many people who would consider this a wonderful bourbon because it’s “smooth” – which for me generally translates to thin, watery, having little or no spice, and little finish. Well, this is extremely smooth, and all those other things. It tastes good, but there’s no spice and no complexity at all.
