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 flavours 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 flavours jump out and make a lasting impression on the palate.

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
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
I didn't enjoy this one at all. It had a sour note that I could get past.
Benjamin
Very good! Our second favorite. Great aftertaste.
Justin
I was very pleased with this whiskey. It seemed very light but flavorful. I enjoyed it very much.
Chris
Nice in the mouth, not to overwhelming. Swish around and a little burn going down, very nice.
Henry
A sweet drink with a strong yet peculiar aftertaste.
Matthew
Didn't fit my palette. Not bad per say but I didn't enjoy it
Bruce
Pleasant surprise really enjoyed this. Nice finish and bold initial taste
Kurosh
Smooth. Fruity, sweet and delicate to the point that it's almost not a spirit. Not my cup of tea.
David
Few was a good sipping bourbon.
Jeff
It was good.
Michael
Very sweet. I thought it was OK but probably wouldn't purchase a bottle.
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
This whiskey tastes like a Manhattan, without having to go through the trouble of mixing a drink.
William
Not a good bourbon at all was very unpleasant.
Eric
Caramel and cinnamon... sweet and smooth... worth a try
Cindi
This one also has sweet notes. We liked sample A better.
Bryce
The taste is rich... love this one
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
Good but a bit spicy for me.
Kyle
Very smooth and enjoyable!
Michael
Very smooth.
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.

Benjamin
Excellent smooth rich bourbon. In a class of its own.
