Great after dinner bourbon

Rachel,
The beginning is nice with the taste of apples, but that spice and clove at the end hits hard.
 
Charles
Charles,
Not bad bourbon, but not looking to buy again or venture to their higher end offerings. Had an "apple" like quality, but not a good one, like a man made apple flavor. Would be good at a party to share around.

Can you say Carmel Apple? I love this Alabama State alcohol, very smooth for 110 proof! I’ll be looking for another bottle soon!

Interesting. The burn is definitely there but I definitely don’t mind it. It was nice over ice.

Interesting whiskey here. The nose you get hit with the apple right upfront. Drink it neat and you taste Clyde May's legacy as a moonshiner. It is harsh and just has a hint of apple when you drink it neat. I tried to add water to temper it but at 110 proof it is hard to do that. I discovered that if you add Oceanspray Cranberry juice the 100% kind makes the apple flavor really shine. Just a rock glass with a shot or two of this whiskey fill in with cranberry juice and some ice cubes makes for an excellent drink that kind of taste like a liquid Jolly Rancher. Whiskey and cran anyone?

Nicholas,
The 'just a whiff of cinnamon and apple tart' is much more forward and present on both the nose and palate than the description would have you believe. Feels like fall in an orchard.

Has a unique flavor and heat to it. One of a kind. I enjoy the spice in this whiskey.
 
Chris
Chris,
Was surprised by the taste. Definitely presence of apple but not overwhelmingly sweet. Almost a refreshing presence. Smooth. Enjoyed it.
 
Terry
Terry,
Wow, one of my new favorites. The smell of caramel and apple are wonderful. At first you taste apple and a hint of caramel. The finish is smooth with a little kick.
