Review from Goldie (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 2266, Created:20131018000311)
Purchased at:The seedy part of Charleston, SC.
Purchased for:$45 for two half gallon bottles.
Info on this bottle:Frankfort Distilling, Louisville, KY Late 60's early 70's
Nose:Vanilla creme brulee.
Taste:Graham crackers and vanilla. Very balanced and it really coats the tongue well.
Finish:The finish last forever and it is so smooth it leaves me wanting that burn. The taste it leaves is very much like banana pudding and white chocolate.
Overall:I bought two half gallons of this for forty bucks out the door. the tax stamps were so old that they were worn off. I can think of no bourbon to compare it to, maybe a little like Elijah craig. But at only six years old, this must be glut bourbon. My new favorite.

Review from drinkdrankdrunk (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 1584, Created:20090524222613, Updated:20090525082901) View discussion on this review.
Purchased at:Dallas
Purchased for:$4.99 for a 500ml
Info on this bottle:Frankfort Distilling, ATHERTONVILLE, Ky pre-Medley 1980
Nose:Cinnamon, corn. Bold with a slight alcohol burn in the nose. Maybe I just stuck my big snout to far into the glass. Can't get enough of the aroma.
Taste:Apples and cinnamon. Rich and robust. Full of rye spiciness that dances in harmony with the other flavors. Lots going on here, but balanced to simplicity.
Finish:Won't stop, nope, wait, nope still going. I'll have to get back to you when it quits.
Overall:This is what an 80 proofer could and should be.. It has the fullness of an 86-90 proofer. Dark dark amber color. Kick ass vintage looking bottle w/a train on it. I love trains. Just a beautiful bourbon. I cherish the few pints I have of this. I also have the 1st transition bottle to Owensboro that I will save for a future review.
