he nose is nice with plenty of spice and oak. The palate opens with spicy notes. It's quite dry and has a slight soapy note. The finish is spicy.

 

This bourbon has a very nice nose and finish, but the palate is a bit flat.

The nose is spicy with some soft, sweet vanilla notes underneath. The palate is sweet with toffee, fading into a butterscotch finish with a slight herbal note. This is a sweet one, but it's a tasty bottle of dessert.

Cherry kool-aid. Less depth but more sweetness. Dirty ash and light sea salt. Complexity is lacking and flat.  Similar to HP15 with a bit more fruit.  [B-/B]

This one has a fantastic nose of old, polished wood and lemon rind. The nose actually reminds me of the nose on some of those old Bernheim wheaters that Willett put out ten years ago. The palate has a similar profile with wood spice, caramel and a dry, ashy mouth feel. The finish picks up a light, acidic berry note which balances nicely with the dry oak notes. Great stuff!

This has a really nice nose with polished wood, the type of nose you don't find on many current release bourbons. The palate starts rich, balanced and fairly dry. After that, it develops a strong, unpleasant acidic note which develops into a berry like finish.

 

Water is really good for this one. A few drops of water cuts the acidity and brings out spicy rye notes from nose to finish which complement the dry, woody notes and make for a really delicious drink. This is a really nice bourbon provided you add some water.

p:  Wow, um, yeah.  Old rubber car hose dipped in antifreeze.  Perversely enjoyable.  Finish is long and disturbing.  If Tim Burton made a whisky.
