— My husband really like it, I bought him samples! Im definitely going to buy a bottle

— Love it. Smooth no a hint of after taste. Definitely want more

— Smells of brown sugar. The smokey peaty side does not come through until you taste it. It did not taste as sweet as I expected and the smoke and spice saved it. I was surprised at how much I like this. It is so smooth I could still taste food with no interference of after taste.

Anthony
Anthony,
i like the smokey taste!
 
Patrick
Patrick,
A little too smoky for me. Smooth, though. Slightly sweet but too much. Came in the Texan Spirit sampler so, figured I’d give it a try. Good with a mixer but, wouldn’t go out of my way to keep a bottle in the liquor cabinet.
 
Mike
Mike,
Too smoky for my liking.
 
David
David,

David
David,
Liked it, smooth
 
Tim
Tim,
Noses a bit like a speyside scotch. Zing! A hot attack. Thick. Strong. Almost like some roasted corn on the finish.
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Very smooth, warm flavor
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
It's a forgetful bourbon, reminiscent of jim beam. it's great alone, or mixed, as a cheap, regular go-to when your goal is intoxication, not a whiskey to sit and sip during poker night or show off in the cabinet. Not terrible, not knock you out of the park
 
Mark
Mark,
Smooth and sweet. Easily best bourbon I’ve had because it doesn’t taste like cheap bourbon.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Just didn’t leave me wanting more. Too much burn from the alcohol without enough taste to offset.
 
Franklin
Franklin,
Not the biggest bourbon drinker, but nothing bad to say. I liked nose of brown sugar and caramel, but the taste and finish were just ok. I would not purchase for myself, but I would tell a friend who likes bourbons to try.

Misplaced in my Craft Side of Bourbon samples. But a sample is a sample. Found it to be a bit thin for my tastes.

edward
edward,
Unique taste. Smoky, a bit of sweetness and some vanilla and peat. Liked the finish. Worthy of a bottle for the home bar, to share with friends for a rather unique taste experience.

Justin
Justin,
Smoky and a little sweet and spicy. I’m getting a little is the peat with a quick finish.
 
Paul
Paul,
The whiskey is OK. I received it as part of a tasting. I drank it all, but would not purchase a bottle. Too many ahead of it in line.
 
Dustin
Dustin,
This is a very interesting whiskey. I enjoyed it. The initial smell is very pleasant but if you smell the glass again after you finish it smells almost entirely different. I will definitely try this again if I had the choice but I would let it sit longer in the glass than I initially did just to see how much bolder the flavors become after airing out a little bit.
 
Robert
Robert,
Not a fan
 
Kelvin
Kelvin,
Okay first off I'm fighting covid-19 right now so my taste buds are a little bit off but this is the only bourbon that I have enjoyed this past week very very good
 
Christopher
Christopher,
On the nose, I get bubble gum, apples, and sweet bread. I know the description of this bourbon is entirely different than what I'm getting, but this is exactly what I'm getting. The palate gives me dry apples, a hint of brown sugar. I'm usually sipping 100+ proof stuff so I don't get any spice at all and no lingering mouth taste. It has no legs in the glass so that can explain the quick drop off. Second favorite of the Texan Spirits tasting box. Would buy it for the $30 price it's listed MSRP.
 
Rafael
Rafael,
A sweet peaty bourbon with a small spicy tingle in the back of the throat. I’m personally not a fan of peaty whiskeys but I’d add this to my collection.
 
Lance
Lance,
Smells sweet and has a sweet taste. Definitely peaty flavor. Not one of my go to favorites.
 
Tom
Tom,
A pleasurable sweet bourbon taste with a smooth experience, and only a short back of the throat burn. A tasty bourbon that I would buy for my bar.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Smooth, sweet.

A good smoky, smooth bourbon
 
Scott
Scott,
Very, very smooth
 
William
William,
At first the spice bit my tongue, but then the vanilla calmed it down. Would consider it again.
 
Robert
Robert,
Smooth
 
William
William,
Sweet and smooth. Doesn't need any water for me.
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
This was smooth and warming. Like wrapping yourself in a blanket by a campfire in the fall. The aroma was very nice, The taste was superb and smooth. The finish was very pleasant. It definitely tasted like MORE.
 
James
James,
This was OK, but it didn't really strike me. It sort of sat in my chest and settled in for a stay. Not horrible, but not something I would purchase. Flavor wise it was a bit enjoyable but overall not striking.
 
Chris
Chris,
Smooth soft bourbon. It’s not bad I just prefer more bite.
 
Russell
Russell,
Nose: Sweet caramel toffee and vanilla Palate: Smooth; sweetness continues with vanilla brown sugar and wood notes. Finish: Lingering sweetness with a hint of burnt sugar and apple peel bitterness. Overall this is a very decent craft bourbon. I could enjoy this regularly.
 
Scott
Scott,
Love it. Smooth no a hint of after taste. Definitely want more
 
Joshua
Joshua,
Amazing smooth finish. Doesn't taste like a 90 proof bourbon at all. Problem is that I could probably put this is a gatorade bottle and drink it.
 
Anne
Anne,
This one was tough for me, I didn't get a lot of flavor coming out of it. Seemed more savory (from the peat and smoke)...but maybe a got a dud taster.
James
James,
I agree, in fact I gave it a 5 as well.
Clint
Clint,
Sweet and Smoky. Very tasty
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Moderately Smokey, a reasonable drink with a mid finish. Decent, something I would drink again
 
Cody
Cody,
Not a bad showing for such a young distillery. Like the fact they are using local ingredients. The smoke/peat note is subtle in this one but as it is a strong profile it tends to dominate on the nose. Mouth feel is a little watery without too much coming through on the palate. Finish is short without burn and a sweet note to close it out.
 
Mrs.
Mrs.,
Delicious. The smoke is subtle but adds a delightful flavor. Finish is smooth.
 
Nathan
Nathan,
Ok bourbon, a little bit of a rye spice, corn and sweet on the palate. Not a long finish but good enough for sipping. Wouldn’t pay more than $25.
 
Jamie
Jamie,
Solid bourbon. Soft flavor.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
A little too smoky and peaty for me. Just not my thing.
 
Michael
Michael,
I was pleasantly surprised by the sweet fruity flavor I experienced after my third swap. This was my favorite of the Texan Spirit trio because of the unique twist mixed with classic flavors you want from your bourbon.
 
Natasha
Natasha,
I liked this one of the Texan taster set the most. I didn’t think it tasted like a lot of smoke. I think the oak, sweet, spicy, fruity flavors were more prominent.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is an outstanding, balance, Bourbon Whiskey that has a rich birth with notes of caramel, peat smoke & spices; while a bold & rich life adds notes of corn, oak, vanilla, dark fruits & brown sugar; that leads to an elegant death with notes of barley & rye spice.
 
Robert
Robert,
Very smoky at first with almost no flavor. My first impression was not good. Spicy comes second and it gets sweeter with each sip. You get more caramel and hints of fruit as you go. Pretty smooth with a medium finish. Enjoyed the last sip significantly more than the first.
 
Sean
Sean,
Nice amber color, smell is mild and the initial taste is full of smoke with a hint of peat. A bit on the harsh side, not my favorite. After a few sips you can taste some caramel with some light sweet aftertaste. Overall about a middle of the road bourbon. I probably wouldn’t order this in a bar or buy a bottle..
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
Smokey with a nice mellow aftertaste.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Spicy caramel; complex. Want to visit distillery.
 
Al
Al,
Nice young bourbon. Looking forward to tasting a cask strength that’s maybe 6-7 yrs old. Promising!
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Color is amber. Nose mildly gives off ethanol and young corn, with a muted malty background. First sip tastes better than it smells, with mild malty flavor, as well as some vanilla and baking spice. However, the young corn still contributes, distracting from the desired flavors, making any other good flavors or aromas very difficult to find. Mouthfeel is a little oily, showing the youth. Overall, not ready for prime time.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
disappointing flavor
 
Todd
Todd,
Just a little smoky and definitely sweet.
 
John
John,
Good smoothness to it. May have went to an 8 if it had more of a flavor switch on finish. As it is it’s kind of flat. But a good flat. Flavor spiral shows smoky but I didn’t get that.
 
Zachary
Zachary,
Tasty bourbon
 
Stefanie
Stefanie,
Smells of brown sugar. The smokey peaty side does not come through until you taste it. It did not taste as sweet as I expected and the smoke and spice saved it. I was surprised at how much I like this. It is so smooth I could still taste food with no interference of after taste.
 
Matt
Matt,
Not really getting the smoky or peaty flavors and glad for it.
 
Angela
Angela,
Don’t get the smoke at all. Nice hint of caramel and vanilla
 
Michael
Michael,
Really nice spice...the rye and barley really stands out to me
 
Brendan
Brendan,
Sweet nose and on the taste. The caramel comes through right away, and there is some underlying orange. The spiciness is easy to taste, but something about the balance seems off. Certainly not my favorite bourbon.
 
Liz
Liz,
I did not get the smoky and peaty notes like others, but that may be because I just had a strong scotch tasting before. It was sweet, but a one not wonder for me.
 
Alex
Alex,
The smoky and sweet spiciness all roll together quite well. The peaty notes also compliment the profile
 
Scot
Scot,
Love this! I drink over an ice cube. Great Carmel and peppers. Strong smoke, but not in a cheap cigarette butt kind of way. Very nice. I’ll be gettin more o this!
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Smooth but spicy - I like it
 
Dan
Dan,
Very nice
 
Ian
Ian,
Great! Fun nose. But feels like it’s two flavors competing for the top spot.
