Review from drinkdrankdrunk (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 1660, Created:20090827095733) View discussion on this review.
Purchased at:Charlie's/ Gun Barrel City
Purchased for:$21.99
Nose:Deep rye and cinnamon. Very spicy with a good alcohol burn.
Taste:Thick and oily. Brown sugar and buttered popcorn. Rye to the nth degree. Some caramel and maple mixed in. Very chewy. Not complex, but full bodied and an excellent burn.
Finish:Going, going, going and gone with the right amount of burn. Fades to popcorn and oak.
Overall:This is a straight forward in your face bourbon. Makes no if's, and's or but's about what your drinking. Balanced flavors, but a little rough. Kinda like a Fighting Cock type profile with a little less kick. I love it, I want more, please bring this expression back. Great value for a Single Barrel. A picture will be posted in the discussion section.
