Kaleinani,
I'm very new to this world so I can't supply any jargon or common industry insight - but this was one of the smoothest whiskeys I've ever had, and I quite thoroughly enjoyed it. I feel like the taste itself was very mild and I could not efficiently pick out notes of any different flavor profiles, hence the 8/10. (Though perhaps my palette isn't refined enough...?) Overall great bottle!

Craig

Very very smooth bourdon, could be my new favorite! Smooth and sweet beginning and a very subtle spice at the bottom end. Truly enjoyable drink.

Ken,
Nothing exceptional. Very drinkable and easy going.
 
Burke
Burke,
It wants to bite at the end but doesn't really follow through. Add ice, and this is super smooth. Can really taste the Carmel and Vanilla flavors with a Honey aftertastes when you breath in.

Good for sipping over ice with bold cinnamon and spice flavors, add a splash of seltzer to being out slightly sweet vanilla and ginger, a good refreshing drink at the end of a long work day

I’m just a beginner at this but this style of bourbon I truly enjoy. You can smell and taste the caramel, vanilla, butterscotch flavors.

Tastes young and thin.

Has a lot of spice to it, like christmas spices.
 
Brent
Brent,
Solid bourbon. I like what these guys are doing in Seattle. Their other offerings are even better, but worth the try.
 
Marques
Marques,
I like these guys a lot. The staff is great, their experiments are awesome... but I really don't like this whiskey. It just tastes too young! Which is crazy, cause it's 5 years old. It just has a very... sour green flavor. Almost a gin like sourness. It certainly has the more common bourbon flavors, vanilla, caramel, oak, a little bit of cherry. But those flavors are buried under the sourness. I've downed half a bottle of it too, so I've given it plenty of chances, it wasn't just something I ate before I tried it. Oddly enough the sourness is almost completely gone in the cask strength version, just a wisp on the back end.

Todd
Todd,
It’s not Pappy Van Winkle, I’ve had once at Cask & Trotters, or Bookers but some of the best damn bourbon I’ve had! Highly recommend.
 
John
John,
Not my favorite, I'm no expert but it seems like it was bottled to soon.
 
Emmy
Emmy,
It's a solid bourbon. Not on par with the best I've ever had but definitely far from the worst. Definitely worth a try.
 
Zachary
Zachary,
This is a really interesting young bourbon. When first opened it smells distinctly of straight alcohol - that's the youth talking. But if you pour it and let it rest for a time, more floral and inviting notes are clearly present. Flavor wise there are clear notes of vanilla, caramel, and a subtle maple - combined it reminded me distinctly of raw pie dough. I actually really enjoyed it, although it's sweet enough that I think I'll drink it primarily as a dessert. Overall, this is a tasty bourbon that's really exceptional given its age. I'm excited to see what else this distillery will produce in the years to come.
 
MAX
MAX,
Very sweet! Smooth! Very good!
 
Justin
Justin,
Underwhelming with an overly strong alcohol smell. Higher proofs like old forester 1920 do a great job of delivering a great nose and taste without that all consuming alcohol smell. This bourbon does not. It remains on my shelf and likely won’t be consumed anytime soon.
 
James
James,
This Bourbon is just ok. The most redeeming quality is a sort of pecan palate, nice for the holidays. BUT, the ethanol is far too forward, I can't get much of an aroma outta it and the spice is not as pleasurable as I'd like. I will give it a go in some cocktails.
 
Cristina
Cristina,
Wierd after taste. Do not approve.
 
Francisco

Christopher
Christopher,
Nose: For a highly ranked bourbon, there's not much there. Grapes, almost brandy like in smell. After opening up a while, there are undertones of salted caramel. Some peanut shells. Palate: This explodes on the mouth. A really great mouthful. Spice on the attack. Caramel. Wonderful butterscotch. Oak, slightly tannic. Prunes. Finish: Lingering spice. A bit of pleasant heat. Nice. 8/10. If there were a stronger nose, easily a 9.
 
Bret
Bret,
After reading the reviews, I thought I would get more spice out of it. Very smooth, sweet caramel and vanilla. That just seemed to be it for me. The finish was good and long, just sweet though. I like a little more spice on the finish. Good bourbon from my home state!
 
Evan
Evan,
Bronze color with initial tones of butterscotch and caramel. Very good bourbon, worth the money.
 
Gordon
Gordon,
It’s good and easy to drink. The spice hits early but then kind of dies off

Top Notch Bourbon
 
Rob
Rob,
One of my better fines. I'm glad I bought this local bottle. It comes out very smooth & sweet when you slipping. Very easy to drink. I'll be getting another bottle very soon.
 
Lee
Lee,
This bottle is very special. Smooth but substantial. Really like the flavor profile. Beautiful neat.
 
Jernique
Jernique,
Extreeemeeellyy good!! I am really enjoying it. Had to run around and find it because it was delivered to the wrong person. Glad I found it because it is really good. Smokey and a little peppery at the front end. Then it smooths out and a hint of sweet bourbon and sweet caramel kicks in. Very complex. At the end comes the grain and earthiness. Gotta say I love it! I will get another bottle soon.
 
HOPE
HOPE,
I absolutely loved this bourbon! It was extra smooth, with a slightly sweet finish which I loved. Great with Ginger Ale too!

Shawn,
This is my favorite daily drinker right now. So balanced and delicious, it is tough to put this one down!
