Review from masterbuilder (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 2342, Created:20150607011631, Updated:20150919234959)
Purchased at:Pennsyvania Wine & Spirits Store 0231
Purchased for:$39.99 + 2.80 (tax) = $42.79
Info on this bottle:Batch No 14K696
Proof Of this Bottle:91
Nose:A good dose of rye + some heat. I nosed it for quite a while and it was ethanol forward all the way. Sweetness hides in the background.
Taste:Thin at first, then it fills the mouth with fruit and leather. The sides of the tongue go crazy with the underlying rye.
Finish:Mostly leather and tobacco. Could be longer, but not bad for a "modern" Bourbon.
Overall:I really enjoyed this pour. (several pours, actually) While there could be more on the taste and finish, the overall drink is quite pleasant. I don't know if Chatham is squeezing Michter's bottom line, but their Bourbon has remained one of the better drinks throughout the years. Good for them. Recommend.

EDIT 9/19/15/: Batch 15F544 is a good bit sweeter. Still kind of short on the finish, but still a very nice drink. Still recommend.

Review from BuffaloBill (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 1300, Created:20080918131320) View discussion on this review.
Purchased at:Worcester, MA
Purchased for:$30
Info on this bottle:Michter's US-1 Batch #4J-3
Nose:Butter, butter, and more fresh churned butter. Thick and rich. Like honey dripping from a jar. Huge bourbon with a great Honey-Bee pollen nose.
Taste:Rounder than round... Buttered French Toast with Maple Syrup was unanimous amongst several tasters including myself. I cracked the seal and shared this bottle amongst many and we were all wide-eyed and taken back by it. Huge syrupy viscosity, incredible texture, balanced, and very creamy. Delicious and absolutely outstanding!
Finish:Soft and very long with lingering notes of maple and maple sugar.
Overall:I got lucky... it's one of the finest bottles of bourbon I've ever experienced. Later I found another bottle that saw too much sun near a window at a store. It had a sulfur and hydrogen sulfide (rotten eggs) overtone, but - if you get lucky - this is one helluva bourbon. It's definitely up there in my Top-10 Best of.... BB

Review from Bourbon Joe (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 1132, Created:20080613100503) View discussion on this review.
Purchased at:On Sale At PALCB
Purchased for:$30.00
Info on this bottle:Batch 7K-2
Nose:Rather ordinary "Bourbon" nose. Nothing stands out except perhaps alcohol. Nothing special or noteworthy here.
Taste:Corn, very slight caramel and alcohol. Not much else.
Finish:Short and unremarkable.
Overall:This is not a Straight Kentucky Bourbon so it is probably less than 4 y/o.
Made by KBD in Bardstown, it's basically lower shelf dreck in a nice bottle. I will not be buying any more of this.
