I don't drink this one often enough. It's my baseline for complex bourbons just as much as Jim Beam White-label is a benchmark for acceptable general bourbon. As Mike points out, you get the corn, you get the rye (and it's floral fruitiness), you get the alcohol hit, you sense the oakiness from the barrel. It's all there, compartmentalized like not often found. This is 'instructor' bourbon -- you can make people understand what the Hell you're talkin' about with this one. Best of all, it's cheap enough not to worry about whether to buy a bottle. Keep one on the shelf.
