Review from KettleOne (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 2111, Created:20120831185831)
Purchased at:NC ABC Store
Purchased for:22.00
Nose:In many ways, I think the nose is the most impressive part of this fine whiskey. It is a rich smell. Heavy. As with many of my reviews, I can only smell brown sugar and vanilla. But it is a very pleasant smell.
Taste:At first, I taste a strong sting of rye and the heat of the high proof. But, the flavor is dry and crisp...reminds me of Stagg with less strength. I get hints of vanilla and toffee. I like the kick. It's a man's whiskey.
Finish:Lingering flavor. I get a grain taste. Burnt flavor. Good. Smoothed over by wheat. I liken the finish to some complex whiskeys like William Larue Weller in 123 proof. Good stuff.
Overall:This is a bargain whiskey. In my opinion, the flavors and its overall impression are synonomous with a very expensive whiskey with William Larue Weller or Stagg. This whiskey is similar to its brethren. It has all that I like in whiskey...not sweet, a good sting and a long finish. Highly recommend it.

Review from mrviognier (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 1826, Created:20100324221118)
Purchased at:Sales Sample
Nose:Caramel, candy corn, sweet oak, hay, lemon curd/orange blossom, spun sugar. Very pleasant...nothing disjointed here.
Taste:Hello! Now THAT is how Bourbon should taste. Sweet entry leading to a solid, smooth mid-palate of cereal, barrel, cola nut. Sweet and viscous.
Finish:Like skating on glass...smooth and goes on and on. Great integration of alcohol here...and everything else.
Overall:A well-crafted, seamless Bourbon that just begs to be savored. I almost forgot just how good Weller is. Never again!

Review from juelze (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 1780, Created:20091220230431)
Purchased at:Discount Liquor - Milwaukee, WI
Purchased for:$19.99
Info on this bottle:New label
Nose:Nice is a bit spicey with a bit of a herbaceous aroma. Notes of honey and once you get past the alcohol, a nice aroma of vanilla.
Taste:Taste is of a bit of leather, grass, and only in the finish you do get a bit of honey and vanilla.
Finish:Very enjoyable finish. Very long warmth with a quick burn up front.
Overall:A solid bourbon for the price!

Review from Dump Bucket (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 1735, Created:20091022191425)
Purchased at:BevMo Sac, CA
Purchased for:$22 with tax
Nose:Reminds me of the ones from 2004. Good OWA nose with a rich vanilla and sweetness.
Taste:Ahhh. That is good juice. vanilla, maple, light woods and toches of caramel.
Finish:A little shorter than expected,but not short. A good 45 sedonds plus and wonderful. ALl of teh vanillas, sweetnesses and flavors you expect from OWA
Overall:Save your money on the 07-09 OWA old bottles and go pick these first gent new bottles up. They are far better than the end of the Old Label Run.

Review from Dump Bucket (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 1730, Created:20091016181519)
Purchased at:Julio's
Purchased for:$25 including tax and shipping ($18 at store)
Info on this bottle:New Label BD/BE SB from the Bourbon Crusades
Nose:This is fresh off of the Fed Ex truck and it is doing great. There is a very close relationship to the PVW 15yr here. Lot of the same characteristics, with a touch of youth. Brown sugars, creams, and some nice oak. There are hints of vanilla with a passing of citrus.
Taste:VANILLA then candy corn and cream. 15 seconds in brings some soft burn that increases over time. 30 seconds in brings touches of oak and more cream...
Finish:a little cinnamon with the vanilla and cream. The candy corn sweetness just touches in and out with the vanilla and brown sugar.
Overall:Glad I got 12, but one is going to Morgan... I need to get another case easy....
