Review from spun_cookie (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 1186, Created:20080705183415)
Purchased at:Gift from BJG
Info on this bottle:Japan purchase
Nose:Sweet, but not like the red label. No where near the 101.

There is a cherry wood scent to it, but more like bark.. or charred cherry wood. And there is an odd old leather smell.
Taste:Hmm, better than I remember and there is cherry in this... then vanilla.. much sweeter than before...

There is a great deal of change in this over time. but the vanilla and cherry remain. the change comes in the form of a little harsh mid pallet bite with some spice, but it comes and goes and does off over time.
Finish:Picks up in the finish where the taste ends.. vanilla and then a cherry vanilla. There is an odd sharp taste right at first, but then is it very pleasant.

Strong finish for 15 seconds and then drops a big notch towards a memory.
Overall:I have had this before, from this bottle and I thought it was terrible, but today as i taste it, it must have been me.

This is good. Not as good as the MM101 I reviewed, but very good..

Purchased at:
Nose:Sweet, cherry and wood.
Taste: tastes like the red but with more um mph. Somewhat harsher than the regular red.
A little spicy too. Cherry and vanilla with a hint of wood gives way to a sort of spicy taste.
Finish:It finishes on a sweet and spicy note.
Overall: Think "red" meets rye.
