Review from spun_cookie (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 1226, Created:20080808182538, Updated:20080808182611)
Purchased at:Bev Mo
Purchased for:Don't Remimber
Nose:Liquorish, leather, corn, some light vanilla, but very little. There is also a slight hint of banana.
Taste:Sweet, little vanilla, liquorish, fruit/floral (unripe banana)
Finish:Little caramel to mix with some floral and liquorish. Little burn.
Overall:There is not much to be happy about. I open this once in a while to try it so see if I have mislabeled in my mind as ???ordinary??? and flat, but every time my thoughts come to these notes???

Review from abcgroup (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 305, Created:20051102185406)
Purchased at:Green's (Atlanta)
Purchased for:25.99
Info on this bottle:DSP-KY-12
Proof Of this Bottle:93.7
Nose:Wet leather with a hint of caramel and just a little vanilla.
Taste:This has a robust flavor. It's not overbearing and it's not rough. It's just obivous...if that makes sense. I like it. It's got a nice wet leather taste with a good balance of oak. Not very sweet compared to others.
Finish:Warm...with medium bodied finish. The oak lingers the most.
Overall:I think this is a damn fine bourbon, especially for the price. Other bottles would catch a much higher price for the same bourbon. This is a great deal and well worth it. It's at least 2 tiers above your standard stock in this price range.

Review from bourbonv (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 105)
Purchased at:Liquor Barn on Hurstbourne Lane, Louisville
Info on this bottle:Standard bottle from liqor store before it was pulled
Proof Of this Bottle:93.7
Nose:Old leather and oak with some vanilla and fruit - dates.
Taste:Fruity with dates and apricots soaked in vanilla. A little oak and tobacco leading into the finish. No alcohol burn but a little warmth in the throat.
Finish:Dry and oaky with a little fruit sweetness and spice. Lingering finish makes you want some more.
Overall:Barton has done a great job with this first entry into the "premium" pakaged bourbon.
