Review from Mike (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 615, Created:20061025114038)
Purchased at:Sigman Bottle Shop, Conyers, GA
Purchased for:$65
Info on this bottle:Bottle 603/800 Distilled 1981, Bottled 2003
Proof Of this Bottle:90.8
Nose:Lots of wood, vanilla, nuts, brown sugar, light cream, and something like mineral spirits in the alcohol that seems decidedly out of place.
Taste:Some sweetness and light spices, including some pepper. Dry tannins with a bit of the wrong kind of bite.
Finish:Moderate but quite dry and woody.
Overall:In the barrel too long in my opinion, not to its advantage. A big disappointment to me cause I was expecting much more from this bourbon!! A clear case of older ain't always better! Is this a bourbon that couldn't make the grade under another label??
