Review from JoeBourbon (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 302, Created:20051027075304, Updated:20051027080803)
Purchased at:From a half empty bottle purchased from member of this forum
Purchased for:17.00
Info on this bottle:This was one of the newer full label bottles. For lack of better place I put it here.
Nose:Not able to discern anything special. Nothing jumped out at me. The nose was pleasant however.
Taste:Nice balance of fruit, oak and alcohol. This was tasted against WT Kentucky Spirit SB. The nose and taste is virtually identical to the Kentucky Spirit.
Finish:Nice, medium length finish.
Overall:This is a good bourbon but I would not pay the going price (65+) for another bottle. The Kentucky Spirit is a dead ringer for this one and Russell's Reserve 101 is its equal IMO.

Purchased at:Liquor store near Elkton Maryland
Info on this bottle:Standard bottle from liqor store
Proof Of this Bottle:101
Nose:Honeysuckle flowers with a little oak and vanilla. Some green mint hiding in the background.
Taste:Warm on the toungue but quickly giving away to caramel toffee and ripe apricotss with a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon spice.
Finish:Spicy sweet with caramel and other candy flavors slowly changing over to oak wood, but no smoke or char. Long lasting and pleasant.
Overall:This was truely a great product. If you find a bottle, buy it, drink it and look for some more.
