Review from drinkdrankdrunk (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 1660, Created:20090827095733) View discussion on this review.
|Purchased at:||Charlie's/ Gun Barrel City|
|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.|
