Purchased at:Dallas
Purchased for:$15
Info on this bottle:Late 70's, tax strip, liter
Proof Of this Bottle:86
Nose:Alcohol burn up front, Toffee, Butter Popcorn, Lots of Grain. Huge nose once the burn subsided. Very promising!
Taste:Very Grainy with tons of oak. Light cinnamon spice notes. Not a very inviting flavor. To many earthy tones to muttle through to get to the pleasant flavors. Medium bodied.
Finish:Burn short, Medium long finish on the flavor. The grain and oak flavors linger the longest. Lacking in balance.
Overall:The nose was very deceiving and just didn't deliver in the flavor. It's a basic enough bourbon, but tastes much older than 7 years. It has to be. Nice deep brown, almost amber color. I'm guessing the glut was in full swing and they had to fill labels with what they had sitting around. I will let this sit and give it another go in a few months.
