    January 30, 2016 - “Spirits of the World” (non-blind), Spirit 9: This whisky was medium amber in colour and offered dried fruit, citrus, corn, butterscotch, coconut as well as mild nutty and medicinal notes on the nose. On the palate the whisky seemed slightly sweetish and showed hints of dried fruits and coconut, mild nutty notes, cereal and vanilla, with some heat from the alcohol and average length. The medium-bodied whisky had moderate complexity, the alcohol was disharmonious and cut off the flavours.

    January 11, 2014 - Amber color. Dull and subdued nose. The barest level of acceptability of flavor intensity and complexity for what sells as $20 Bourbon, much less something that sells so well. It's charm is beyond me. It didn't present well in any format offered: straight, on ice, or with a Tsp of branch water. This bottle became The lively topic of derision last evening among our group members, surely an embarrassment to its producer. Last evening's tasting table included, among many other things: Evan Williams B-I-B, Buffalo Trace 90p, WL Weller 12y, Wild Turkey 101, Elmer T Lee, Old Grand-Dad B-I-B 100p, and George Dickel #12.

    September 8, 2013 - Seems fine as a blending bourbon, but given i tried it only after first spending a bit of time exploring single malts, and much better bourbons, I likely was spoiled.
