Norman
Norman,
peppery smell with a hint of sweet spice. When sipping it is a warm drink and smooth not enough smoke/oak for my liking, but the price makes up for that this is on to bring out when you have a bunch of "friends" over 6 star rating but since I do keep it stocked i give it a seven!
 
Eddie

One of my favorites! Smooth with a great taste
 
Monica
Monica,
My favorite for an Old Fashioned!
 
Matt
Matt,
Wonderful bourbon! I’m still highly partial to WR Double Oaked... but this over an ice cube or neat is sipping joy. It is neither harsh nor complex. Smooth with just enough flavors to keep you coming back for more. I do recommend Double Oaked if you want something a bit more flavorful though. 👍

I believe this will be my new go to bourbon.

Joshua,
I've generally not been too impressed with Woodford. It's good bourbon but until this one none of them really stood out to me. Thought this was fairly smooth and sweet with a nice finish.

My everyday bourbon of choice.
 
Devin
Devin,
Dark Amber/ Red color with medium thick and slow tears. The nose is floral sweet with notes of honey, toffee and licorice, like being at a fair. The taste has fruity sweetness up front that transitions into candy sweet before delving into a more spicy and woody flavor. The mouthfeel was creamy and delicate and the finish was short and smooth with notes of black pepper, oak, caramel and toffee. A classic and very enjoyable bourbon!
 
Dale

Bourbon. Whats not to like??

Very smooth and creamy finish
 
Todd
Todd,
It's not revolutionary or a standout, but it is a solid/reliable Bourbon. It has an enjoyable flavor profile and is better than a lot of others at that price point. While it's not something I would personally crave to sip neat, it makes a decent gulit-free old fashioned or manhattan and has enough variety in the notes to play well with several different types of bitters.
 
Anthony
Anthony,
A very fine bourbon. Perfect, of course, for use in a seasonal mint julip, or to enjoy neat. Just the right sweet undertones to warm you in winter thinking of spring, or to enjoy on a nice day in the sun. As someone who usually switches to Gin in the summer, this is one of the few bourbons that have year round staying power.
 
JAMES
JAMES,
Everybody loves this very smooth- vanilla and caramel nose. Not overly complex and no real heat

Solid entry level bourbon
 
cory
cory,
kind of overpriced for the flavor profile.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Very good bourbons for the person starting out, all three are different in their own rights and readily available. I think maybe $37 is a tad overpriced but it’s the convenience factor. Overall pretty good I’d say.

Dave
Dave,
My fiancee is not a bourbon expert, so she bought this for me because she liked the way the bottle looked. Maybe I'll trust her to buy me other whiskeys based on that (!) as this is among the best-tasting bourbons I've had. Smooth, silky, caramel-ly... I can't imagine putting ice or water in it.
