Robert
Robert,
Easy drinking, sweet, a bit oaky.
 
Mitch
Mitch,
Perfect balance between sweet and spicy, and the finish is smooth, too.
 
Derek
Derek,
As far as wheated bourbons go, this is top notch for a bottom shelf price. Somewhat complex with a decent linger. Better than most competitors and the price makes it even better.

Very smooth vanilla and butterscotch flavor with a little burn not much. Great on ice.

Good for the price, not overly complex but would make a good daily drinker

If it wasn’t so rare, it’d make a great daily drinker, but thanks to some dumb hipsters, it’s almost impossible to find any of the Welllers and Van Winkle’s, even the low end Special Reserve! Nothing extremely special about it, but better than any other wheat brands I’ve tried(at least those brands bottles in the $25 range) like Maker’s, Larceny, Rebel Yell, Redemption Wheated, etc etc. Spicy nose with lots of vanilla and caramel, palates the same, mouthfeel is good but not great, and the finish is medium length and more spicy than sweet if you ask me. If it was as available as, say, Buffalo Trace, I’d drink it around twice a week(as an every day drinker), but it’s not, so I have a bottle or two in my collection for the sake of the collection, and that’s about it. A must try for wheater fans, but don’t go spending crazy money for it. Overall, 78/100

Sean,
Excellent, especially at <$30 price tag. Little known fact, this comes from same warehouses as what becomes Pappy Van Winkle bottlings. A solid deal at this price, and fits in a nice area with Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace and Knob Creek. Some of the best values out there in my opinion.

Super smooth wheated bourbon.
 
George
George,
Excellent smooth and complex compliment to Weller 12 at a better price. Still give the edge to the 12 but this is an exceptional bourbon for sipping.
 
Jamie
Jamie,
As far as I’m concerned there’s not a better bourbon for a cheaper price.

Dave,
Great for the retail price (under $30) but not worth secondary pricing

Sweet spice upfront. Cinnamon aftertaste. Very strong aroma.

Nice and neat
 
Mike
Mike,
This is a solid versatile bourbon. Smooth enough to drink neat but not so high end you would feel bad about mixing cocktail with it.
 
Jon
Jon,
Sweet wheated bourbs. I had this neat so far, and it is smooth. Waited for some fire but remained smooth and clean. I love it
 
Ivan
Ivan,
Smooth wheat start with a tad of a bite at the end. Not overwhelming though. Good stuff

No better value. Avoided it because I assumed its taste was commiserate with its price. Boy was I wrong. This Bourbon is simply amazing.
