Member Ratings and Notes
N: Cinnamon, pepper, a little wood and a touch of sharp orange. A little caramel. 
P: A bit waxy initially; light cinnamon, a bit of heat that grows throughout. Light caramel. 
F: Cinnamon, dry wood and a little bitter. 
Not bad - a modern profile. A little dry for me personally.  

The nose is a bit musty and very woody with some sweet maple syrup The palate is heavily spicy and minty in a mouth wash sort of way which continues into the finish. This is a very nice bourbon and one I'd happily buy if it was available, but I must say I preferred the later, Buffalo Trace version of the 101.

A medium amber with a lot of rye, wood and spice on the tongue. Great, long draw. [11/9/12]


n: maple syrup, buttery caramel, toasted oak, walnuts, 


t: spice, mint, and wood initial. Candied pecans on buttermilk pancakes. Dry and very oaky finish with caramel corn. Straightforward bourbon, but cohesive and tasty.  [B.]


N: Black berry, licorice, coffee, black pepper

P: Dark chocolae, coffee grind and tea with grassy notes

F: woody
