Review from scottann22 (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 1850, Created:20100626023556)
Purchased at:liquor baarn, louisville, ky
Purchased for:32.00
Nose:[Olfactory impressions]
notice some spice, cinammon, and a butteriness
Taste:[Description of the initial taste impression]
smooth and wonderful spice, but not sweet. almost a dash of caramel.
Finish:[Description of the lingering taste impression]
Soft and supple with spice
Overall:[Overall impression of this bottling]
I've lived in Ky for 14 years and tried virtually all bourbons. This is the only one i LOVE neat. What a great sipper. Incredible sensation on the tongue. It's now my top bourbon, unless I get a bottle of 15 year old Van Winkle.

Review from Chinpo (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 1657, Created:20090819110747)
Purchased at:Boston - Charles St. (Good assortment of potables - but the prices!)
Purchased for:Same as WT Rare Breed $45 An outrage!
Info on this bottle:Batch 42 / Bottle 66
Nose:[Olfactory impressions]
Taste:Lots of taste for this proof. Sweet to almost syrupy with not
much harshness. Reminds me of Woodford Reserve and
Ridgemont 1792; better than the former but not the later.
If you like ETL or Blantons you might like this. Good neat.
Finish:[Description of the lingering taste impression]
Overall:This style whiskey suits my style of drinking. An example of
lower octane product with big taste.

Review from Frezo (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 929, Created:20071201203246, Updated:20090518130101)
Purchased at:New Hampshire State Liquor Store
Purchased for:$25.99
Info on this bottle:Batch #50 Bottle #185
Proof Of this Bottle:86
Nose:Carmel and slight citrus with subtle fruit
Taste:Pleasing "corn sweetness" of carmel and vanilla changing to a flat leathery prominence at mid tounge. It's nothing bitey or spikey, but pleasantly consistent and pushes any sweetness into the background.
Finish:Peppery sweetness tapering into allspice and oak. There is a minimal rye tingle at the end.
Overall:This is enjoyable and different with the difference being in the middle taste. I love a pour that has its own characteristic and liked this more than McLain & Kyne's Jefferson's which reminded me of Ridgemont Reserve and look forward to trying Jefferson's Rserve. I recommend this to someone not expecting an "in your face" experience, but rather a balanced potpourri of flavors that results in distinction.
