yes, i took an 'informal' last swallow (happy inauguration)....and as i chewed (it's thick enough for that) and twirled it in my mouth, i noticed that sweet density stayed center while the spices flickered outwards like the spiral arms of a galaxy...this is astounding stuff, not in a truly explosive way, but in that it balances DEEP mellowness and incandescent outbursts in a way that spells out simply, solid, unique bourbon. others compare. many pale. more reach higher. but for $25, this continues to impress. bottle to bottle. and pour to pour.
