Oh baby, I want Bourbon now.

From the city of Evanston, Illinois, where the Temperance movement originates, comes a craft distillery that put a stop to long-standing dry laws in these parts. Situated in the backside alley of a former chop shop, Paul Hletko and his skilled team are crafting the finest spirits made from Corn, Rye and Barley. The distillery’s single purpose is to bring the best products made from the best grains, perfectly matured and finished under one roof.  
Now to give you a brief backstory. In the 19th century a woman named Francis Elizabeth Willard was elected President of the Chicago Christian Temperance Movement. She embarked on a decade-long crusade to prohibit alcohol in the US, and had succeeded. Mr. Hletko worked hard and lobbied against the law, and eventually, made it go away. Ironically and hilariously, he’s named his craft spirits after Francis (FEW are the initials of her name). Bold move for sure.
 
Matured in charred Minnesota Oak barrels, this is a wonderfully unique three-grain Bourbon. Minnesota Oak barrels have a tighter grain, which gives a lot of character to the liquid inside. The presence of the three grains are felt throughout, with a maltedness that lasts from nose to finish. But the flavors do not stop there. This Whisky is rich and smooth, with the thick sweetness of caramel that combines elegantly with a signature Bourbon spice. These flavors jump out and make a lasting impression on the palate.

What does Few Bourbon Whiskey taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Few Bourbon Whiskey and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

I really enjoyed the sample. I most definitely will be purchasing a bottle.

Yes
Sean
Sean,
Very smooth and flavorful. My favorite this far! Would definitely get again.
David
David,
For me, this was a solid, no frills whiskey. Not a lot of complex taste, but also - no harsh flavors or after taste. I wouldn't turn away a glass of this, but if I'm looking for something unique, I might veer elsewhere.
JACK
JACK,
Very high alcohol, low on the flavor side. No depth, wouldn't purchase this.
Joel
Joel,
Good Kentucky bourbon style flavor. A little bit on the sweet side on the Finish but overall not bad
Steven
Steven,
Many layers, sweet and a bit of heat.
Kenneth
Kenneth,
Scents of black tea. Sweet, minimal alcohol taste. Subtle clove and cinnamon . No spice or tang. Water opens up the caramel flavor, but subtle.
Aaron
Aaron,
I found this thin, with way too much clove and charcoal. There is a difference in the oak flavor which is interesting, but not enough to justify this being on my shelf.
Marc
Marc,
Nice
Nicholas
Nicholas,
Not bad
Craig
Craig,
The initial taste of charcoal and cloves overpowers any sweetness for me, but is smooth and finishes differently.
Mike
Mike,
This sample was the best of the three. It was smoother and sweeter than the other two. I am glad I sampled the other two, so I wasn't stuck with the bottle 😕
Monty
Monty,
While I didn't dislike it, I didn't really feel it was a "go to." I think it would be great in a sazerac or mule though...
Kevin
Kevin,
Good, slight cola taste
Kristopher
Kristopher,
Nice and smooth, very enjoyable. I pick up a nice smell of vanilla. Profile of cloves is very noticeable at the end.
Portia
Portia,
Not as sweet as I thought it would be. A nice laid back drink to end the night or sip throughout the evening.
David
David,
Smooth
Timothy
Timothy,
Finishes with a little too much peat (Charcoal) for my taste. Smooth start, definitely some Caramel.
Patrick
Patrick,
Smooth woody taste
Bret
Bret,
Smooth and clean, with a hint of sweetness. Liked the long finish with a bit of spice. Would buy if available!
Ryne
Ryne,
Good started bourbon. Easy to drink by itself but lacks the luster of other bourbons
Luke
Luke,
Smooth, hint of spice and sweetness
Dustin
Dustin,
Found out that I just am not a Bourbon guy.
Robert
Robert,
I liked the smoothness and Carmel flavor. A good sipping bourbon
Patrick
Patrick,
Smooth and flavorful, would buy!
Donald
Donald,
We all liked the smoothness and complexity of this bourbon. Don't drink much bourbon but this one was good to me.
Vincent
Vincent,
Sharp Carmel flavor supported by a mild clove note quickly after. I enjoyed the charred note and I think it would be nice after some BBQ. I felt there was a bit of a tug-o-war between the cinnamon and clove notes. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it.
Christopher
Christopher,
Definitely my favorite out of the box. Add a drop or two of water to really bring out the caramel flavors. This is an easy drinker without much of a burn. I would recommend this as a casual drink.
Jose
Jose,
Didn't care for the char and clove undertones
Steve
Steve,
Very smooth. This is a good everyday bourbon.
Amy
Amy,
Very unique cinnamon spice flavor, subtle enough to not overpower, will get some to celebrate autumn season proper
Bryce
Bryce,
First I hate bourbon and the corn sweet grossness that defines it This bourbon was quite simple and smooth for what it is. Flavours were muted and I guess the world simple defines it. That said it is quite smooth and if I had to mix a drink with bourbon this would work well.
Aaron
Aaron,
Very good
Shane
Shane,
Amazingly smooth with a hint of spice. Makes a perfect, "perfect" Manhattan.
Clay
Clay,
Nice and smooth. Complex enough to talk about. I'd drink this regularly.
Dr
Dr,
Tastes like hardwood floors, which have just been varnished. Alcohol taste is prevalent. Thin body.
Harrison
Harrison,
Drinkable neat. A nice dram
Richard
Richard,
3 in my office are bourbon drinkers and love to taste whiskey. We all thought that it had a very light nose and smelled like alcohol, it had no body at all and the taste was reminiscent of grain alcohol.
Current
Current,
Overall, Its a 50/50 pick of the night if nothing else is available. Not a keeper for the books. The bite was too tangy (for me anyhow). Hits the back of the throat way too hard for a smooth whiskey. The rye sits on the tongue while the clove hits you in the back of the nasal cavity as you sip. The cinnamon and barley lay flat on the taste buds as you drink. A hard sipper with a strong bite overall.
Jessica
Jessica,
Love the smoothness and the caramel notes. Nice dry finish with almost peaty undertone
Sean
Sean,
Was surprised with this one. Really enjoyed it, nice finish and not too harsh.
Nathan
Nathan,
I wasn't as happy with this one.
Mathew
Mathew,
I get why people have a hard time with this one. The rye really comes through leaving it dryer and spicier than a standard bourbon. In my opinion though it makes it different enough to be interesting. It also has a remarkably smooth character throughout. Well worth a taste at least.
Josh
Josh,
My least favorite in the taster box. I can't believe this costs $54. It mostly tastes like charcoal. Not in a good smokey/peaty/scotchy way either. I at least now know to avoid this in the future.
Tristan
Tristan,
Probably wouldn't pay $57 dollars for a bottle, but I do like it. Apple and smoke on the nose, soft flavor palate with emphasis on charred notes. A few drops of water only mellowed it out more. Weak 6, strong 5.
Thomas
Thomas,
Decent drink but nothing spectacular. Considering price probably won't buy as there are good everyday drinkers for 10 bucks less and some excellent drinkers for 10 bucks more.
Glenn
Glenn,
I can think of several bourbons for less money. That is the problem with craft whiskeys. Often they are just not a taste value.
Wes
Wes,
I liked this one best out of the tasting package!
James
James,
Did not care for the finish.
Geoff
Geoff,
I really liked this one. It had great flavor and not too much heat. Very Good! I would purchase this one again.
Drew
Drew,
Pretty good.
Vlad
Vlad,
Average
Gale
Gale,
ok, but not much of a Wow factor.
Charles
Charles,
Decent
Gregory
Gregory,
I'm not a bourbon man but this is one of the better ones I have tried.
Damon
Damon,
Good, but not great
Jason
Jason,
First taste is like an apricot jam that quickly morphs into a salted caramel. Finish is all salted caramel with a fair amount of burn.
Duane
Duane,
Decent but not memorable
Ben
Ben,
Very smooth drunk neat with water back. Lots of vanilla up front and subtle into the back.
Gary
Gary,
Very nice and not overly sweet. Goes down very smoothly. Better than Angel's Envy, our previous best.
Marcus
Marcus,
Smooth
Tom
Tom,
Hit me in back of the mouth. Didn't care for it.
Matthew
Matthew,
Full slightly fusel beginning, slightly caramel middle, slow burning finish.
Mark
Mark,
Nice Cinnamon nose! A little disappointed with the taste.
Patrick
Patrick,
Smooth and surprisingly un-bourbon.
Cody
Cody,
I can really taste the tobacco
Andy
Andy,
Delicious! Most please!
David
David,
The charred oak really stands out in this whiskey... And that's it. A thoroughly uninspired drink with little character or taste, Few bourbon is rough around the edges and almost insipid at first taste. Few items on the taste spiral stand out, and those that do are not pleasant or enjoyable.
Angela
Angela,
Definitely not for me! Couldn't get the taste out of my mouth soon enough.
Hansen
Hansen,
not too strong aroma, very subtle smell, almost inviting to sniff even more, especially for a bourbon whisky, taste not as strong as journeyman, but definitely distinct sweet bourbon whisky
John
John,
Not good, maybe on ice...?
Darren
Darren,
A lot going on and in the right direction... caramel, vanilla, pepper, a little smoky funk in the trunk... she's got some rough edges, but nothing I can't handle!
Nick
Nick,
Nice bold tags middle and sweet finish
Taylor
Taylor,
Tasting notes were spot on. Great finish
Randy
Randy,
Absolutely hated it. The flavor of Rye was so strong I couldn't take more than two sips.
Billy
Billy,
Very smooth. Love the charred, smokey finish.
David
David,
Very good, smooth, best of the three.
Jeremy
Jeremy,
Fairly smooth and moderately sweet. A nice Bourbon with a hint of Rye.
Jeff
Jeff,
Fruit in nose. Pleasant. Nice deep color. Very nice flavor before the finish. Great finish, lots of caramel lingers.
Hussain
Hussain,
The smell is nice and the after taste left a great impression.
Sumeet
Sumeet,
Warm and has a lasting taste but it's pretty bland. Too much caramel with a little sharpness but nothing else. Wouldn't recommend purchasing but not bad if you see it at the bar and want to try a sip.
Sean
Sean,
Not bad
Michael
Michael,
Vials only hold a couple shots, don't let your clumsy friends pour them...
Chris
Chris,
This is what I want from a bourbon. It's smooth, sweet, and with a peppery finish
Anthony
Anthony,
Out of the three choices this was my favorite. It was smooth without the bite or burn that you get with some other whiskey. Nice sipping alcohol. This is something that I would sit on my front porch on a Saturday afternoon and sip with a great cigar
Paul
Paul,
Smokey, pretty horrible. wouldn't drink it again if offered.
Tim
Tim,
Not a fan at all. Very harsh stuff!
George
George,
I liked this one, it reminded me of Jack Daniels single barrel. Also had a smooth after taste, pleasant.
Thomas
Thomas,
Punch to the back of the throat with first sip, after that, sweet and rye notes.
Kevin
Kevin,
Not my favorite. Wouldn't buy it. Too spicy, but that could be the charred flavor.
Mike
Mike,
Smooth and sweet. Compares to Makers Mark. Winner of our taste test!
Kwan
Kwan,
Caramel. Yum.
Madison
Madison,
Very grainy; ok flavor profile. Just not my kind of whiskey.
Jason
Jason,
A slight burn to this bourbon, but not too bad, just a bit too sweet for my taste.
Josh
Josh,
Decent flavor. Slightly sweet but not very smooth
Blake
Blake,
I quite enjoyed it ! Uniquely flavored bourbon
Rhyn
Rhyn,
Easy whiskey to drink. Not overly complex and sweet with a good smokey finish. Worth the money but you can get it in a taster if a little uneasy about the mixed review.
Todd
Todd,
I liked the unique flavor of this one. It's unlike other bourbons I've had recently.
Steve
Steve,
Simple nose, syrup feel, with a dominate malt finish that lingers.
Antti
Antti,
is an outstanding balanced sipper, 'honey, nut-crunch', then again I am partial to 10 year old Tawny Ports with this profile!
Michael
Michael,
Delicious. The charcoal flavoring stands out prominently on the palate.
Eric
Eric,
Like it, don't love it.. i dig the sweet and tangy notes
Edison
Edison,
Smells like cereal, which gives you hope. Tastes like cereal and markers, not so good. A little water makes it palatable. There are much better tasting bottles for less money.
Joseph
Joseph,
Initial smoke, peat and heat. Mid of spice, smoke and little bit of caramel. Medium finish of heat, vanilla, spice and oats.
Jedediah
Jedediah,
Just not a fan of the flavor.
Chris
Chris,
Not my favorite. This one has a pretty heavy rye flavor up front with a slight sweet flavor on the back end. There is a pretty prevalent alcohol flavor at the end that turned me off slightly. Overall it is very drinkable. It's just not my favorite.
Michael
Michael,
First off I'm a Scotch drinker and not a big fan of ANY Bourbon but I do enjoy a good Gin & Tonic during the summer months. That being said I guess it was okay for a Bourbon, don't really know.
John
John,
Not bad, but not amazing either. A little bit simple on the flavor profile for me to want to drink straight, but too expensive to want to mix. Probably will not try again.
Levi
Levi,
Very nice smooth stays with you. A+
Patrick
Patrick,
Unique taste with an abundance of Rye & especially Wheat flavor. Reminds me of the smell of Kentucky Bluegrass. Perhaps appropriate with the Derby just around the corner.
Michael
Michael,
Taste the Barrel on this middle of the road bourbon. It's average too my taste
Michael
Michael,
Solid bourbon just not my speed.
Tristan
Tristan,
Easy to drink. Definitely taste the char of the cask. Would drink again.
Jeff
Jeff,
Not bad, but didn't seem aged enough. It needed more oak flavor. The Rye flavor was not prominent, if that's your thing.
Carl
Carl,
Sweet up front with caramel notes, but then the rye... Too. Much. Rye. Overly spicy finish. Too bad too, has a nice soft mouth feel.
Brad
Brad,
Harsh for me to start. Second taste was better. Might continue to improve
Captain
Captain,
A bit too hot for my taste. The burn makes it unenjoyable
Todd
Todd,
Unique. Sweeter with a nice finish.
Brady
Brady,
This bourbon is highly unique. Smell presents a charcoal-like sweetness. Upon tasting FEW you get a Tamarind fruit taste, along with tangy citrus, and an obvious sweet corn flavor. The finish is smokey-sweet. This is definitely a special bourbon. The story behind it makes it even more worth the adoration. Very, very enjoyable. A+
Scott
Scott,
Middle of the road for me. Not bad but not the first bottle I grab when I want a drink.
Scott
Scott,
Middle of the road for me. Not bad but not the first bottle I grab when I want a drink.
Seth
Seth,
Poured it back in the bottle after the first sip
Paul
Paul,
I like it very much went down smooth
Joseph
Joseph,
Solid bourbon. Not bad. Not great. Somewhere in the middle, especially because it is pricy for what it is. Sharp up front. Caramel. Apricot finish that you can taste for a while.
Rob
Rob,
Good sipping bourbon. Not too complex and not as smooth as others I drink.
Chris
Chris,
Taste the cinnamon and the hardness of the wood with a tangy and burn as You swallow.
Jennifer
Jennifer,
I tasted very strong cinnamon and clove
Tim
Tim,
I got subtle raisin and tea notes on the nose. Definitely malty with spice and the malty finish lasts a long time. I'd drink it again.
Wayne
Wayne,
Not as smooth as other whiskeys. More Woody Taste. I'd give it a B!
Nick
Nick,
Really solid. Hint of spice hits all the right notes for me. I haven't had many that were better than this.
Ryan
Ryan,
Somewhat disappointing. Peaty nose and finish reminds me of a cheap scotch.
Craig
Craig,
This is some smooth whiskey, very enjoyable!
Jimi
Jimi,
This came in my welcome box, and I think I've found a new favorite. Beautiful coloring, sweet tasting, and I already wish I had a bottle.
Justin
Justin,
Nice spice and a great compliment to the steak done we had. This was the first out of the taster box i tried. Very bold, but great flavior imo
Kenneth
Kenneth,
Flat tasting - not powerful. Just bland.
James
James,
Young. Burn on the finish just ruined it for me. I like a good burn but this was too young.
Tom
Tom,
Tried it in the sample box. Did not enjoy it at all. Definitely young and harsh.
Scott
Scott,
This was "C" in my Flaviar Welcome Box. I shared this with my wife who is NOT a major whiskey/bourbon drinker. We often drink Jim Beam...I go neat and she takes ice and water ("But don't drown it!" From Patricia Neal, movie: Harm's Way). We tasted this box together and I adjusted my rating based on her input. Journeyman was a "7". We would both order it in any lounge where such quality was found and we'd buy in our liquor store if they carried it!
Beth
Beth,
For some reason I love this - not too sweet but smooth and slight caramel taste and smell.
George
George,
Nice spicy taste but finish short for my preference
Gerard
Gerard,
Some hints of tobacco, refreshing start to a smooth findh
Enoch
Enoch,
The flavor is harsh and lacks depth, but one may like it if they're a fan of whiskey with strong helpings of rye. (I changed this from 4 to 5 stars because it's grows on me by the end of the glass.)
Alex
Alex,
It was an enjoyable whiskey but nothing memorable. I would buy it again to have around for casual drinking and mixing, and recommend it for people looking for an enjoyable 'simple' whiskey.
Brian
Brian,
WONDERFUL tobacco smell! Good mouth feel. Slightly spicy finish.
Tracey
Tracey,
Liked best of the 3, smoother
Patrick
Patrick,
Interesting, but i did not like it
Brian
Brian,
Meh... it's ok.
David
David,
An interesting complex Bourbon definitely worth purchasing a whole bottle for later.
Rob
Rob,
Spicy and smooth. Delightful
William
William,
Light and unremarkable.
Gary
Gary,
It was just Bourbon and, as such, pretty unpleasant - I recommend that all three companies sell everything and use the proceeds to buy single malt scotch and distribute it to their former victims.
Joshua
Joshua,
The rating I give this fine Bourbon does it no justice. I am just one who prefers light flavors rather than Dark flavors. Still a Fine Way to end the day. One Thumb Up
Chris
Chris,
I didn't enjoy this one at all. It had a sour note that I could get past.
Benjamin
Benjamin,
Very good! Our second favorite. Great aftertaste.
Justin
Justin,
I was very pleased with this whiskey. It seemed very light but flavorful. I enjoyed it very much.
Chris
Chris,
Nice in the mouth, not to overwhelming. Swish around and a little burn going down, very nice.
Henry
Henry,
A sweet drink with a strong yet peculiar aftertaste.
Matthew
Matthew,
Didn't fit my palette. Not bad per say but I didn't enjoy it
Bruce
Bruce,
Pleasant surprise really enjoyed this. Nice finish and bold initial taste
Kurosh
Kurosh,
Smooth. Fruity, sweet and delicate to the point that it's almost not a spirit. Not my cup of tea.
David
David,
Few was a good sipping bourbon.
Jeff
Jeff,
It was good.
Michael
Michael,
Very sweet. I thought it was OK but probably wouldn't purchase a bottle.
Barry
Barry,
Not the smoothest but pretty sweet. Vanilla Carmel and some spice. Long warm finish. Worth a taste but maybe not worth buying a whole bottle
Therese
Therese,
This whiskey tastes like a Manhattan, without having to go through the trouble of mixing a drink.
William
William,
Not a good bourbon at all was very unpleasant.
Eric
Eric,
Caramel and cinnamon... sweet and smooth... worth a try
Cindi
Cindi,
This one also has sweet notes. We liked sample A better.
Bryce
Bryce,
The taste is rich... love this one
Edward
Edward,
This was strangely dry on the tongue. As a novice, have not experienced that before. I didn't mind. Nose and taste were very good.

Good bourbon. Not as great as the Rye, and other bourbons are better and cheaper!
Richard
Richard,
Good but a bit spicy for me.
Kyle
Kyle,
Very smooth and enjoyable!
Michael
Michael,
Very smooth.
Diogenes
Diogenes,
It's a bourbon that drinks like an Irish. Very smooth. Right off the bat you get caramel and cinnamon. Then the rye comes in and you've got yourself a party. Personally, I like my bourbon to have a. It more bite to it then this, although that doesn't mean I'm not enjoying it. I think it would make a wonderful old fashioned, I just haven't gotten around to trying that yet.
