Top reviews for Cleveland Black Reserve American Bourbon Whiskey:

— This was in my welcome box. I wasn't sure I would like it, but it has become one of my favorites! It was full of flavor and very smooth. I will order it again.

— This one is strong! Gives a big kick to a cocktail!

— What can I say? Well it’s smooth, very smooth. As an avid whiskey drinker I was amazed at how smooth this was going down with very little bite at the end. My wife who is a self proclaimed whiskey hater had a drink and she was impressed with how little bite it had at the end as well.

Not a traditional bourbon. Good flavors. Good go to bottle.
 
Jim
Jim,
I prefer bourbons under 90 proof. Above 90 the alcohol overrides some of the flavors. This was an enjoyable bourbon with some hints of unique flavors, but the alcohol taste was too strong.
 
Michael
Michael,
Decent mild flavor
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Not a fan. For the couple dollars more I will buy eagle rare. This tasted fake. Kinda harsh. Was hoping for more from it. Just really don't know what to say. Didn't get the flavor wheel they say it has that's for sure.
 
Gene
Gene,

Smooth on the lips and a deep taste.
 
John
John,
I'm surprised they put a prop whiskey in the subscription. Wish I would've done more research on the brand who trys to circumvent the aging process. Did not enjoy this at all.
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
Not very smooth. If your into that kind of bourbon you'll probably like it.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
Tasted artificial
 
Matthew
Matthew,
I'm definitely not a fan of this process. The taste was like drinking racing fuel from a toilet. I'm sorry but I hope they refine this process of making it and turn out better products.
 
Laura

Nuanced and layered flavors, lovely lingering finish

Enjoyed the smoothness but a bit too sweet for my taste!

Smooth with a nice taste of oak at the end
 
BRUCE
BRUCE,
I am mostly a scotch drinker but this is nicely refreshing and a pteasant alternative.
 
Gideon
Gideon,
Excellent in a Manhattan
 
Blair
Blair,
A little harsh and little favor.
 
Tom
Tom,
This was not great. For the price point, I would much rather sip Buffalo Trace or Woodford Reserve.
 
Sebastian
Sebastian,
Nothing exciting, this might have been a bad batch, but it was not as smooth as most comments found - had a bit of a bite and harshness to it.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
What can I say? Well it’s smooth, very smooth. As an avid whiskey drinker I was amazed at how smooth this was going down with very little bite at the end. My wife who is a self proclaimed whiskey hater had a drink and she was impressed with how little bite it had at the end as well.
 
Kelly
Kelly,
Really enjoyed the smooth caramel and leathery finish.
 
David
David,
I was impressed with how it tasted, not to mention the bottle looks great.
 
Mark
Mark,
The magic works. Pretty smooth, hints of vanilla, butter. Not quite as smooth as the 12 or 14 year aged bourbons, but I'll buy it again.
 
Chris
Chris,
Exceptionally smooth. Great taste, with a slight sweet finish.
 
Greg
Greg,
Amazingly smooth taste
 
Stefan
Stefan,
plasticy
 
Steve
Steve,
It’s just okay. It has very little aroma. The taste is smooth, sweeter but not overly caramel. Middle of the road in all aspects.
 
Josh
Josh,
This is an okay drink. Smell is less than inspiring but taste is better. An okay drink for a relaxing evening.
 
Geoffrey
Geoffrey,
Nice, woody strong. Not bad for the price.
 
Luke
Luke,
Alot of spice, which is nice and reinforces a deceptive flavor. A good amount of kick
 
Jarod
Jarod,
Woody aroma. Very strong and spicey with a nice sweetness to it. Not bad at all for the price. I actually dropped an ice cube in it (which I rarely ever do) and it accentuated the crispness.
 
Trip
Trip,
Can’t be beaten for this price.
 
Chuck
Chuck,
Just not my flavor. Has a bitter taste. I like the smoother less snap Bourbon taste
 
Anna
Anna,
Intriguingly smooth. Forward notes of caramel and honey, with a smooth finish of vanilla and cereal grains.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Great tasting whiskey especially for the price! Very smooth!
 
Daren
Daren,
I enjoyed this one tremendously. It was a smooth tasting drink
 
Keith
Keith,
I must have a bad batch. I thought it was full of burn and bite.
 
Claudia
Claudia,
Smooth and buttery!
 
Dawn
Dawn,
Nice and smooth and great on the rocks! Nice undertones in flavor
 
Dane
Dane,
Strait up it’s dangerously smooth! Makes a nice sipping whiskey or a nice whiskey sour spirit.
 
CLEVELAND
CLEVELAND,
Nice smooth drinking bourbon. Not too much kick. I'd say overall it's balanced and does its job well.
 
Anthony
Anthony,
Really smooth and interesting whiskey. A bit of fire on the back end, but not too much. I got a decent amount of vanilla.
 
Michael
Michael,
very strong and harsh, did not find it enjoyable at all
 
Chris
Chris,
This tasted like wood chips to me. I have yet to have a whiskey that tries to cut corners on barrel aging that actually tastes like an older whiskey than it is.
 
Terry
Terry,
Very strong bite, not as good as I would have like for the price. Still needs some work.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is an outstanding, balanced. Bourbon with a delicate birth, sweet life & long death.
 
Brandon
Brandon,
Honestly, does not taste very aged. Strong bite and interesting taste, and kudos to the idea of using technology to fast-track the aging process, but I don't believe this replicates it yet.
 
Chad
Chad,
Very interesting woody bourbon very strong.
 
Anthony
Anthony,
Big bite and great finish. If you like a full body woody bourbon this is great.
