It’s just okay, drinks best on the rocks.

Not very good...really bizarre taste for my palate.

Found the nose to be sickeningly sweet and the finish too spicy.

young fresh oak
 
ANNE
ANNE,
Smells good (woody on the nose). Piney, wood resin. Harsh American whiskey. Would order for myself.
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Oddly dank nose. Lots of spice and cinnamon up front, then mild sweetness and smoke. Too much like a hot toddy. Agree it might be better with Coke
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Aroma: Sweet campfire with a vanilla and candy caramel quality. Taste: heavy campfire like smokiness, a medium spiciness. On ice:. Creamy campfire, light spice. It's alright, might work great mixed.
 
Todd
Todd,
Not one of my favorites. Definitely get caramel, but not something I need again.
 
Jim
Jim,
Nice sipper good flavor
 
Mark
Mark,
Too much pepper taste with awkward peach taste. Not my favorite bourbon out there.
 
John
John,
The spice is beating out the caramel. Not bad but a little to much.
 
Liz
Liz,
This had an almost metallic start and a super spicy, rye like, finish.
 
Timothy
Timothy,
Not a fan at all. This tastes like paint smells.
 
Burton
Burton,
I tried this blind, and it was quite surprising. The smell was mild but the taste was powerful. I first thought it was a Texas bourbon with its strong cask influence. Some nice light fruit and vanilla. A truly unique dram if you are looking for something that breaks the mold.
 
Victor
Victor,
Didn’t care for it.
 
Angela
Angela,
Cookie nose, a little burn that goes away with ice.
 
Zachary
Zachary,
Nutty caramel delicious. Will get again
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
Not a fan. Pretty harsh and a kind of soapy initial taste. I unfortunately didn’t find it worth drinking.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Pretty classic bourbon profile with caramel, vanilla, and woody notes. A bit too much bite going down
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Far too sweet, with a rough palette all around. Not my speed at all.
 
Stefanie
Stefanie,
For once something is too spicy for me. All I get is hot caramel and that grain alcohol taste. Smells lovely though, that warm spicy bourbon smell.
 
Michael
Michael,
Love it
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
Smells like caramel and butter, and has a sharp pepper on the tongue. I put it over rocks and it was delicious.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Color is dark honey. Nose starts with a little youth from the corn. Beneath that lies vanilla and caramel. The youth covers a lot of the other possible smells. First sip is oak and caramel, with a hint of black pepper. Some fruits follow that, as well as some vanilla. Mouthfeel is moderately viscous. Finish however has that immature corn, though not as potent as the nose. The immaturity doesn't completely ruin it, but definitely detracts from an otherwise quite sippable Bourbon. Definitely would not pay asking price for this.
 
Matt
Matt,
Corn and apricot nose. Rich, heavy mouthfeel. Notes of cooked meats and fruit. A complex and interesting bourbon.
 
Craig
Craig,
To say "interesting" is to damn with faint praise. But for the life of me I couldn't place the forward flavor here, other than...unusual. The Flavor Wheel, FWIW, finds peach, and that may explain why I found this "tasty but utterly unexpected." The all-knowing Wheel also finds "bonfire," which sounds way cooler than anything this guy's palate can detect. At a proper whiskey hall I'd order one and ask my companion or cheerful stranger to try it just for sport. Buy a bottle? No.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is a very good, oaky, Straight Bourbon Whiskey which has a bold birth; while an intense life leads to a long & oaky death with notes of grain, almond & spice.
 
Mike
Mike,
Best of the sampler. Cleaner, sweeter finish. No chemical aftertastes. Would buy again.
 
Shannon
Shannon,
Favorite out of the box.
 
Lane
Lane,
Strong bonfire woody flavor. Usually like but not this one
 
Brian
Brian,
Not my taste.
 
Jose
Jose,
Not bad .. spicy yet oaky not bad at all
 
Holly
Holly,
So smooth and sweet finish
 
Rachel
Rachel,
Carmel and black pepper are nice it has, good strong fist then smooths out
 
Luis
Luis,
It’s going to leave an impression - it’s harsh, and unapologetic. Hints of caramel and vanilla from your more balanced bourbons exist, but the enduring quality is that of charcoal and brunt oak... which isn’t a bad thing. Surprisingly delicious, but not for the faint of heat (or taste)!
 
Amy
Amy,
Not my cup of tea, harsh, eye watering
 
HJ
HJ,
Like the caramel and butterscotch and the light touch of peach. However, the shift to strong pepper is a little harsh for me. I like it, but not sure it’s worth the higher cost.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
A bourbon that feels like a brandy. The nose is harsh and it's a thick caramel in the palate. Paired nicely with milk chocolate but I'm having trouble finding a $79/bottle sip on this one.
 
Greg
Greg,
Yikes! This is not for me! Not even sure how to describe the taste. Smells bad and it's uncomfortable on the tongue. Very earthy I guess I'd call it.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
ok start, but the grassy finish wasn't for me
 
Allison
Allison,
Not a fan of peach and black pepper mix
 
Paul
Paul,
Very enjoyable; delicious butterscotch nose and Carmel flavor; drinks easy, thin mouthfeel, too much wheat/smoke flavor, and short finish though make it seem a bit immature, but very easy sippin.
 
Austin
Austin,
Caramel nose, spicy body, and floral-sweet finish
 
Jeffry
Jeffry,
Sweet start and woody finish. Nice unique flavor profile, gives you a warm feeling. Not sure if it’s worth the price though
 
Gregory
Gregory,
Mmmm, oaky
 
James
James,
A little too overpowering my my palette. Nice long finish though.
 
Terri
Terri,
smooth . Wanted a little more complexity, but good, simple bourbon.
 
Matt
Matt,
So I don’t upset people that really like this... this is my opinion and it helps my own personal flavor profile get tighter for future recommendations. This whiskey is more like whisky to me. Spelling is the key. I taste the woody/smoky more than I had hoped. Actually pretty smooth though! I like the caramel and peach but just not strong enough to overcome that scotch flavor. Wouldn’t make my home bar but wouldn’t deny if offered... just my opinion on my taste as it compares to bourbons available. Cheers!
 
Alex
Alex,
Wonderfully smooth, Doesn’t taste as potent as it is! It’s the night before thanksgiving, so it wonderfully embodies the flavors of the season! The caramel and subtle spiciness makes it a splendid whisky for the outdoors, camping, and by the fire.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Strong taste. Smooth.
 
Jeff
Jeff,
A distinct taste of burnt rubber...did not enjoy
 
Charles
Charles,
Smells woody, and soft. Tastes dry and woody like a bonfire. Went down smooth, but I didn't like it much.
 
chris
chris,
no burn, great woody taste and smell.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Very smooth with NO burn. slightly sweet with a mild spice finish
 
Scott
Scott,
Spice with sweet
 
Oliver
Oliver,
Smells great. Tastes weird
 
Erik
Erik,
The first thing that hit me was the aroma -- like opening a new box of sneakers! Learning slowly that I am not a big fan of the wheated Bourbons, and should stay closer to my comfort zone. It is SMOOTH, very drinkable neat in a chilled snifter, and has a clean finish that eases off quickly. Curious to see how it fits in my next Manhattan.
