My first bottle and I thought it has a lot of brown sugar..I've heard that before and not tasted it but this bottle was in my opinion better than blantons...and I like blantons

Very different from most whiskeys I enjoy. Less sweet, but much more rich, oaky taste. New favorite.
 
Jason
Jason,
Incredible. Nowadays, it’s super hard to find high quality “uniquely” tasting whiskeys. This one if fantastic at a great price point. Semi-sweet, fruit, caramel and a hint of spice. Yummo!
 
Daniel

Spicey
 
Andres
Andres,
Smooth, spices, cinnamon and with a caramel finish
 
Stefan
Stefan,
The nose is nutty and oaky, but also almost a pine forrest smell. The taste is heavy and more peppery and spicy than the more classic bourbons. Perhaps because a higher percent ABV. A small vaniliacreamy note is present along with caramel but its beneath the spice. After some tasting the alcohol is lighter and the oak, vaniliacream and caramel is more clear. The whiskey stays for a long time and as the oak deminize the vaniliacream, peppery, pineforest, almost rye whisky felling is left for at long time. A good choice if you what a heavyer bourbon to drink in the summer evenings. A icestone takes off the alcohol and spice which makes it alot more cool in the pallet without loosing taste. A icestone makes it a 8 av 10.
 
Robert
Robert,
Smooth, mellow, comforting. Balanced
 
Jessica
Jessica,
This is a very tasty and unique bourbon to my palate. What I like about it upfront is that it has its own character which I've been having a hard time with lately finding good whisky in general that has its own style. This is sweet, has a slight bbq essence, with just enough spice cover over the tongue that is throughly relaxing and peaceful.
 
William
William,
Really like the smoothness of this bourbon. Great price for the quality and drinkability. A go to bourbon for everyday. Will stay in my stocked bar.

John

smoother than a lot of bourbons for the same price, you don't lose any flavor either
 
John
John,
Smooth and smoky. About what I'm looking for in a bourbon.
 
Josh
Josh,
I appreciate flavor instead of a punch in the face. I want layers and complexity and nuance. Michter’s was one of my first forays into bourbon, and it was a welcoming one because it wasn’t off-putting at all. Flavorful with a smooth slide down the throat rather than a full-on burn. Maybe not the best with a Kentucky Mule (I prefer a Moscow Mule), but it's fantastic on its own.
 
Clay
Clay,
smooooooooooth
 
Paul
Paul,
This bourbon is OK. OK is not bad, but OK is not what I pay $45 a bottle for. My "expert" evaluation is that is started with a bourbon smell and had a bourbon taste. I would drink it again, but there are sooooo many options that are cheaper and easier to find. I gave it a 4, but that might have been generous.
 
Stephen
Stephen,
was a smooth sweet nose which opened up and was heavy maple sweetness. Taste started off with cinnamon and caramel and grew in to a darker oak finish. was good and was a close second in my blind tasting (heavens door, woodenville, blade and bow, michter's)
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
Burn after the first sip. Had to add sprite just to get the pour down. Will be used for guest ... to get the bottle done

It a was smooth
 
Matt
Matt,
Always a go-to on my shelf.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
This is everything I want in a good bourbon. Caramel and sweet corn on the nose. A silky smooth initial palate that intensifies with a sweet and spicy cinnamon middle, and an easy finish. I’ll be adding this to my rotation.
 
Jared
Jared,
Michter's offers a complete enjoyment of the caramel flavor with a very smooth finish.
 
Angel
Angel,
Caramel, cinnamon, oak, anise with a slight bitterness. Wonderful qualities presented at 45.7% Abv. If there was a bourbon you should take some time with, this is the one.

Love it! Great by the fire enjoying the Taste of America. Easy drinking.
 
brandon
brandon,
Okay, earlier I think I wrote a review calling this bourbon 🥃 “overrated” that was wrong this bourbon just need more time for me. This bourbon is amazing and seemingly simple. Big Smooth vanilla and oak. I will be getting more.

Good. Very pleasant on the nose. Definitely prefer it neat.

Good value
 
brandon
brandon,
Overrated bourbon, strange flavors but nice finish will not buy again
 
guest
guest,
I get the hype around it as it’s not bad at all. But on the first few tries, it has been too reminiscent of Four Roses and at the price point if I had to choose...welp. It has good flavor of vanilla and a good enough oak finish but still doesn’t wow me like other versions of this brand.
 
Russell
Russell,
One of my favorites. Can't go wrong with this choice. Sometimes hard to find in liquor stores so grab it here.

A wonderful pour every time I taste it. Deep rich flavors with a finish I really enjoy
 
Joshua
Joshua,
Real good stuff.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
I wanted to like this. It just tasted like dry burning to me. I can drink much higher proofs without any problem, but this one was close to EC small batch which I also cannot stand.
 
Michael
Michael,
One of the best in my simple opinion.
 
Stuart
Stuart,
Great stuff-
 
John

A warm, mapley bourbon with a dry oaky finish. Just the right spiciness and alcohol taste while being extremely smooth. Affordable and delicious, not super available but I'm happy to mail order this.
 
Robert
Robert,
Mitcher's is my number two bourbon currently. Very rich and smooth with a nice caramel flavor and reasonably priced. It's available locally (unlike Buffalo Trace) but whit the free shipping...

The caramel and cinnamon give it a smooth, yet robust flavor I’d recommend to anyone!

Candy, Werther’s Original hard candy. If you like sweet, you’ll love Michter’s. Don’t expect exotic flavors or a lot of nuance. This is candy.
 
Eduardo
Eduardo,
Excellent mouthfeel. I got dried apricot, caramel, and a little bit of oak. Medium finish with a bit of cinnamon and treacle. Better than any other <$50 bottle on the market. Bangin booze for the buck.

Michter's again knocks it out of the park with this not too sweet, not too dry bourbon.
 
Zachery
Zachery,
we are woodford lovers and I think this is right up there with it. It is a touch sweeter and not quite as heavy. A must try if you have not already. Very easy to drink!

This was delicious. Plain and simple I liked this. The mix of flavors was well balanced. It was nice and smooth and I wished I had more. I can see why this is an award winner. I’ll buy more in the future.

Very nice. Great taste
 
Bret
Bret,
First time trying Michter's, won't be the last. Everything I like about bourbon. Smooth, sweet with the caramel and vanilla to start. Nice, long spicey rye finish. Really good bourbon for the price.

This Bottle was the first Bourbon I have ever tried. It was so good.
 
Scot
Scot,
Sure am liking this one. Drinking it over a cube. Can’t lie, I feel a bit like I’m out over the campfire swapping stories. Little smoky and rough, but very good.
 
guest
guest,
Not my favorite bourbon. A little too harsh for my taste
 
Valentin
Valentin,
Fruits and caramel in spades on the nose with a hint of spicy cinnamon and a bit pepper on the tongue. Quite enjoyably. Note that this is sourced whisky, i.e. not distilled by Michter's
 
Lisa

Michter's is definitely one of my favorites. I didn't think I would ever like anything better than my Koval but this one is right up there with it. Very smooth and very nice

This is a beautiful bourbon. Smooth and fragrant. Very nice!
 
James
James,
Michter's very quickly stole my heart. Amazing brand, amazing flavor, and always stocked in my house. I have yet to try one I like better than Michter's. If you get some of the 10-year, be prepared to pick your socks up from across the room. Amazing.
 
Chris
Chris,
Love the start, smooth beginning solid drink!
 
Paige
Paige,
One of the best bourbons you can buy for the money. Fruit and caramel come obvious on the nose while the cinnamon and spices lead you into a sweet vanilla nutty finish. The spice to sweet ratio are about as perfect as you can get. Well done Michter’s!
 
Athanasios
Athanasios,
Really smooth, probably better for high end whiskey cocktails than sipping straight.

Smooth up front with some spice lingering. Reminds me of makers mark but not as sweet. Very good!
 
Frank
Frank,
If put head to head with any distillers standard offering, Michter’s will win a blind test every time. Can anyone argue that?

Just your average bourbon

guest

Liked but didn’t love this one, keep going back to finish the bottle hoping I’ll get something different but not there for me, a lot of pepper/ spice is all I can get on this one.

Robert

Excellent smooth yet it has enough gusto so you know your drinking a top bourbon

Mellow and great for relaxing. Couldn’t love it more!
 
Gabriel
Gabriel,
This is for sure one of my favorite bourbons now that I've tried it. Not overpowering in any one taste, but it has a nice kick that'll make someone want to smack their mother. I truly enjoyed a nice surprise when I tasted floral and smooth. Worth every ounce!
 
avo
avo,
Peppery to begin, familiar bourbon taste, and a smooth finish, not too sweet a good sipper n relaxer.
 
Craig
Craig,
Nice flavor. First was a hint of Carmel followed by pepper. The pepper really comes out and lingers for some time. Smooth finish.
 
Stephen

Well balanced, smooth and mildly sweet. Definitely dried fruit on the nose and very oaky and peppery on the palette. Rich vanilla on the finish. A fine fine gift for my membership indeed!
 
Carmine

A new member gift that I liked.... it is now all I want to drink! So smooth, so flavorful and just mmmmm!
 
Jacob
Jacob,
Excellent whiskey. Very smooth, yet still packed with flavor. Upfront flavors are sweet caramel note with a slightly spicy and dry finish. Aroma is sorta musky but primarily barley.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
This was my first real bourbon experience, ok let me back track. I purchased a bottle of Makers Mark before this got to me and the difference is night and day. This Michters Burbon was fantastic! I tasted some sweet and spicy to the tongue sort of a honey cinnamon ginger and found it leaves a sweet lingering sensation with only a little burn. I really enjoyed this neat but also a few drops of water opened it up and made it the perfect dram to end the day with. I would love to get their Rye and toasted varieties.
 
Ken
Ken,
true Kentucky powerhouse
 
Jared
Jared,
It was okay. I didn't dislike it, but had higher expectations based on the Flaviar marketing.
 
Martin
Martin,
The Sweet sensation of caramel is amazing. Good everyday dram
 
Chris
Chris,
Drinking it neat in a whiskey glass and let it open up a little, it has a wonderful sweet flavor with a good bourbon burn. For the price it’s an incredible bourbon
 
Brandon
Brandon,
trying this one straight was good. Had some sweet honey notes and some maple and fruit. The alcohol burn was a little strong but not unpleasant.

Wonderfully smooth

It is really smooth. made we want more.
 
Austin
Austin,
After getting this with sign-up, I must say I was delightfully pleased. The flavor is complex yet smooth. Drinking it on the rocks really allowed it to shine. The flavor spiral is right on.
 
Dominick
Dominick,
Has some decent complexity without being overwhelming, especially for new bourbon drinkers.
 
Brad
Brad,
Got this with the sign up, it’s delicious. I can’t say I tasted the fruit in the flavor spiral, but the rest was there.
 
Nathan
Nathan,
I really enjoy this one. Solid. Full bodied. Nice caramel flavor that finishes a bit spicy.
 
Chris
Chris,
One of my first that wasn’t a mainstream ones. It’s very complex in taste and the first sip will make your face twitch. I cut it with 20% water and a rock ice cube.
 
Justin
Justin,
To the nose it’s sweet, the tongue it’s spicy. Really strong notes of vanilla + cinnamon.
 
James
James,
Very smooth and easy to sip, sweet notes of Carmel and fruit. This was a nice addition to the portfolio.
 
Brandelle
Brandelle,
Warm, smooth cinnamon spice up front, opening to a caramel mouth feel. Undertones of clove linger on the tongue.
 
Jamie
Jamie,
Very peppery and spicy, but still smooth. Dried fruits, and caramel are also present, mostly on the nose and the beginnings of the taste. Would be a lovely finish to a nice steak or pork dinner.
 
David
David,
Too sweet for my likes.
 
John
John,
Outstanding. Smooth and comforting.
 
Kevin

Super smooth and easy to drink. One of my favorites! Love the sweetness in the smell and taste. The strong pepper and spice in the finish is wonderful.
 
Scott

Very nice.
 
Charlie
Charlie,
Nice bourbon but not my favorite. Has a bit more bite like a rye and than a bourbon.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Michters Small Batch Bourbon is my all time favorite bourbon. I can sit and sniff the caramel and butterscotch scents for an hour before even taking my first sip. The taste is perfection with brown sugar and ever-so smooth. I always have this on hand.
 
Samuel
Samuel,
Smooth
 
Tyler
Tyler,
Pretty good nose and finish, but the palate left a lot to hope for. Notes of brown sugar, caramel, toffee with a smooth, oily medium finish.

This was ok. It was harsher on the pallet than I expected, but the flavor was nice. I ended up using it in mixed drinks.

Nice caramel aroma, smooth sweet taste. Nice finish, not too tarte. Enjoyed this bourbon as did my friends I shared it with.
 
Sarah

Love it!
 
Rhett
Rhett,
Nice bourbon, with caramel and tobacco a bit too much spice for me but it's all up to the individuals taste! Very nice I enjoyed it.
 
David
David,
Superb bourbon! Nice vanilla, caramel and even tobacco and clove on the nose. Very soft on the palate with cinnamon, sweet vanilla, more caramel and sweet dried fruit. A very peppery finish is my only critique. Not bad, just a litttle stronger than I expected.
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
As a new member/enthusiasts I really enjoyed this bottle. I would say it’s comparable to Four Roses small batch. It drinks smooth with a little bite at the end.
 
Ro
Ro,
Not as good as the rye to me, but still reasonable.
 
Chris
Chris,
I wasn't impressed with the first taste. However, it quickly grew on me. I like it.
 
Garth
Garth,
This is one of my favorites - after Blanton's - a wonderful Kentucky bourbon - sweet at first - maybe a bit smokey. I drink it straight over one ice cube. I highly recommend it !
 
Christopher
Christopher,
This has now became one favorites. My friends and enjoyed it straight and mixed. I would highly recommend to new Flavier members for there first bottle.
 
Derek
Derek,
Prior to joining this club, I had never heard of Michter's before. But I was very pleasantly surprised by what I tasted. Definitely a current favorite. Thanks for the recommendation!
 
Gary
Gary,
My current favorite bourbon. Michter's Small Batch is terrific straight, really good on the rocks too. Others like it mixed, but I prefer it for sipping. It has the best sweet caramel flavor followed by a very smooth finish.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Great bottle, especially for the cost. Only gave a six because it doesn’t compare to some of the more costlier bottles, but I still enjoyed this drink. Easy start and warm finish. Very smooth for the high alcohol content. Would definitely buy this again.
 
Lane
Lane,
Go this when I joined flaviar, a very pleasant bourbon that really comes alive with a healthy splash of water, nice bite with a great finish that lets you know it's a bourbon.
 
Sunnylee
Sunnylee,
Thoroughly enjoyed this one. Smooth with an easy finish.
 
John
John,
I am not a frequent drinker of bourbon, however the Michters recipe was very easy to savor, not overly sweet, somewhat smokey, and a reasonable oak or woody after taste. Generally, I find bourbon too sweet, but this was not the case with Michters. It was part of my welcome box.
 
Barbara
Barbara,
This is now a favorite.
 
Richard
Richard,
I am pleased with this bourbon. Has a great caramel smell as suggested. Excited to savor this bottle.

Very nice bourbon that is easy to drink over an ice cube. It has a bold beginning with a flavorful and smooth finish. Even my wife liked it
 
Josh
Josh,
Sorely disappointed in what has been hyped up. I drank it, but wouldn't buy again. Plain and just not very tasty in any way shape or fashion. Sorry, just was not for me.
 
Brian
Brian,
Good sipper with a splash of water
 
Nicole
Nicole,
This reminds me of Bulliet Bourbon in taste. Smooth, spicy with the right amount of complexity. Is good on its own on the rocks but also blends well.
 
Mat
Mat,
Ended up using this bottle as a gift with some cigars to celebrate my good friend's new house. It didn't last the night. Between the half dozen of us, this bottle was emptied & when I told them about how I got it & more about Flaviar their eyes lit up. You've got 5 new members coming soon, and all want this bottle. Great straight, mixed with some Ginger Ale (big Jameson & Ginger guy myself), and the cigars were a great sidekick.
 
Kurt
Kurt,
I enjoy this on rocks and I'm sure it would taste great mixed but havent tried yet. I would and will biy again

Nice bourbon. Fruit forward with a comfortable heat. Smooth mouth feel and a sweet vanilla finish.
 
Jacob
Jacob,
Love it. Great bourbon! Smooth and flavorful, with hint of spice. Not typically available in my corner of the world (Wyoming); this would be a standby if it was!
 
Kurt
Kurt,
I liked this but I had it mixed with sprite. I hope in time to be able to enjoy a drink straight or on the rocks but not there yet. I do enjoy Templeton rye straight so I do have hope.
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Great bourbon! My favorite got the price. With some more aging this would be a 10 Classic bourbon well balanced
 
Jernique
Jernique,
I’ve always liked this brand. Nice caramel, vanilla and fruit notes with a little spice. I like it neat first then with some melting ice next. The complexities come out this way and adds to the experience. Always a go to for me.
 
Lindsay
Lindsay,
Delicious. I was excited to get my first box and thought of this bottle as a bonus but it ended up being the big favorite.
 
Kirsten
Kirsten,
I was surprised by the depth of flavor and smoothness.
 
Erin
Erin,
I normally think bourbon is sickeningly sweet. I tend to lean toward savory. However, this is a lovely bourbon. Dried fruit on the nose (golden and concord raisin I believe) and the cinnamon were instantly identifiable. Mouthfeel was pleasant and didn't feel "sticky" likc most bourbons do to me. It is so interesting to me that most do not like the pepper finish. I absolutely adore it. Lovely. Smooth. Delicious.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
I am enjoying this bourbon immensely. Had a buddy over to try everything in the sample box, this bottle, and two others I had ordered from this service and we both agreed, this was the winner. Complex, yet easy to drink, this is now one of my go-to bourbons.
 
Eric
Eric,
Spicier than I’d prefer but very smooth. The US*1 American Whiskey is more my speed but this is still a good bourbon. Sweet nose (golden raisin) followed by subtle smoke and fennel after it sat for 10 minutes. Palate had a spicy lead with flash of juicy fruits and cinnamon. Spicy, peppery finish
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Wow. What a bourbon. So smooth going down with a wonderful flavor. Would definitely buy again.
 
Mark
Mark,
Not much flavor but fairly smooth
 
Daman
Daman,
Absolutely great, one of my favorites
 
William
William,
A nice drink. A bit spicier than I'd prefer, but all in all a nice tasting bourbon
 
David
David,
Very nice Bourbon.
 
Nick
Nick,
cannot express the notes as beautifully as some but its very good smooth and easy to drink.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
Smells like spiced honey. Smooth and peppery. Nice end of day drink on the rocks.
 
Danton
Danton,
Worth having!
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
This was very peppery and spicy for me. Letting it sit in my mouth really brought out the dried fruit and cinnamon but the burn and spiciness were major drawbacks.
 
Jimmy
Jimmy,
Very smooth and great flavor
 
Chris
Chris,
Tried this in a tasting box, and honestly torn between hoarding my last bit and savoring it immediately. Good balance of traditional bourbon whisky flavor and sweetness. Adding to Wish List!
 
Josh
Josh,
Go to drink when out for an afterwork event
 
Shelley
Shelley,
Like others, after all the hype, I was a bit disappointed with this bourbon. It's just not quite as smooth as I would expect and the Peppery finish doesn't roll of my tongue as well as other bourbons I have drank.
 
Debrenee
Debrenee,
Good, especially if you like a dried fruit profile.
 
Craig
Craig,
Although a very good whiskey, after all the hype I read, I was a little disappointed. I will definitely try it again with expectations uncheck.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
This stuff is always a call of mine. It’s on of the few I’d take neat.
 
NICK
NICK,
Smokey aroma. Sweet carmel and touch of smoke. Some cinnamon toward end before it finishes with lasting pepper notes. Def get the bourbon burn that lasts. Not the smoothest neat pour.
 
Michael
Michael,
The dried fruit and the caramel cut nicely against the spice - I actually enjoyed this bourbon quite a bit and would recommend a bottle.
 
Alexander
Alexander,
This is a good standard bourbon, a little kick with a smooth finish. Great alone or in an old fashioned.
 
Craig
Craig,
With all the hype I've read about this I was looking forward to trying it. I was disappointed. I wouldn't place it among my 5 or 6 favorite bourbons, especially given the price.
 
ALICIA
ALICIA,
Not the best I’ve had. Not enough flavor.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Definitely taste the spice to this. Black pepper hits me right away. Definitely has a kick to it but does have a smooth finish on the way down
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Very Smooth, Quite tasty. I would recommend this bourbon for people try.
 
Steve
Steve,
Currently my favorite.
 
Paul
Paul,
Don't love it, but it's solid, middle-of-the-road; I feel like it's a little overpriced. Balanced; a little more spicy and bite than sweet and smooth. Fruity/sweet briefly up front, settles into bold spice/cinnamon; finishes sweet with hint of clove and some heat.
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Smooth, taste, sweet, I like them like this. Would buy this again.
 
Andrew

John
John,
Very nice Bourbon. Smooth with a hint of chocolate
 
Justin
Justin,
Very sweet, slightly spicy and a lot of vanilla, my first impression was "this is great." It is not a complex profile, but it is so very smooth. This is something that could easily replace one of my regulars...
 
Magnus
Magnus,
Actually my first bourbon. I don’t feel like it can even remotely compare to whiskey I’m afraid. I suppose I will have to give it at least one more try before dismissing it but this one was not for me.
 
Monica
Monica,
Spicy and warm notes make this a good staple symptoms sipping bourbon.

Not the best Michter's I've ever had but pretty good.
 
Danny
Danny,
A little sweet upfront for my liking, but finishes with a nice spice. Worth purchasing.
 
Erwin
Erwin,
The aroma catches you first once it’s opened..although it starts pretty strong, it smooths out nicely and has a spicy finish..with the price, it’s become a favorite go to bourbon..

One of the best values in the $25-50 range.

Citrus and Carmel on the nose with a nice spiced finish.

Nice. Short on the front, but good flavors and good finish come through. Flavor spiral is pretty spot on.

Yummmmm
 
Angela
Angela,
Very good bourbon; smooth with just the right warmth
 
Jason
Jason,
The US1 is better. This is smooth finish but a harsh start. Pay less for better whiskey.
 
Bruce
Bruce,
This was a pretty good tasting bourbon; however, it paled in comparison to Bookers, Bakers and Blantons. Just my thoughts.
 
Will
Will,
solid whiskey
 
Bonnie
Bonnie,
Compared to several other bourbon's I've recently tried; this one seems more harsh, not very complex and I felt over priced. It did not leave a pleasant taste in my mouth.
 
guest
guest,
Lots of flavor and refreshing taste at the end.
 
Roland
Roland,
Excellent! A Great bourbon with a unique hint of its own magickal origins. A worthy salute to its creator's talents.
 
guest
guest,
Smells great. As you inhale you can smell the hint of fruit and vanilla. The initial sip has a bit of a bite but not a harsh gasoline hit. It softens and mellows quickly allowing you to taste the spice and peppers giving with a somewhat smokey taste. A very nice whiskey worth sipping next to a fire on a cold day.
 
Armand
Armand,
Very nice!

Good bourbon. If you can find the green Rye, get it. Never tried the sour mash

My favorite Bourbon. Highly recommended to those who like a sweet smokey flavor with a little bit of kick.
 
Jason
Jason,
A phenomenally smooth bourbon with great corn notes and full flavor
 
Michael
Michael,
Straight out the bottle warm I don't recommend except for those that can handle the heat. Pour a glass throw in a single ice sphere and it is delicious. The Mrs stole a shot and poured it in her coke. After screaming sacrilege I tasted it and it tasted like cherry coke. I am really enjoying this bottle as a southern boy who does not drink in moderation.
 
Brian
Brian,
One of the best of the grand master Kentucky craft bourbons in an American bursting at the seams with exciting new whiskeys. Once you're ready to take the training wheels off your tumbler and experience full-throttle flavor, this is your "I've arrived," bottle as a serious bourbon enthusiast.
 
Jody
Jody,
This came very highly rated so I was disappointed. Just kind of clumsy--not well balanced. The alcohol over-powers the palate which is a little bland.
 
Timothy
Timothy,
Smooth and clean. Give this bourbon about ten minutes in your glass to relax and air out then enjoy the rich and deep flavors
 
James
James,
Good stuff!
 
Nathan
Nathan,
Absolutely my favorite Bourbon! Great flavors! I have higher end, more expensive, bourbons but, this is the one bourbon that goes into my decanters. Pick one up, well worth it!
