Review from AndyM (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 2337, Created:20150416001827)
Purchased at:Binny's Chicago south loop
Purchased for:$25 (handle)
Nose:Strong vanilla, some floral scents, and a little leather. After airing for a bit it smells like candy corn.
Taste:Pretty sweet and simple. Vanilla, corn, maybe a little fruit and oak. Feels pretty good in the mouth actually, slightly thick with very little burn.
Finish:Vanilla and oak with a little earthiness to it. Pretty short. Entirely inoffensive but nothing special.
Overall:Larceny's a favorite of mine, so naturally this one piqued my interest. It's sweet and smooth throughout (though that's expected from a wheater). Obviously not as smooth or complex as Larceny but it's got a similar flavor overall. Nice sipper, I don't think it will take me too long to finish this bottle...

Review from spun_cookie (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 1246, Created:20080820190746)
Purchased at:
Nose:Simple light vanilla, little corn, but not bold
Taste:Easy and simple... light vanilla, but no SW butter. there is a little age to it, but overall just a fun sipper
Finish:light oak that drops quick. the vanilla is there for a little while, but then goes away
Overall:Defintily the 2nd class SW next to the BIB. THis was probably better when it was new, but not enought to go buy a bunch...
