    December 17, 2018 - Observed and emptied the 0.7 l bottle since May 9th, 2018. Intense nose of halva, brown sugar, cherry fruit drop (took a month to show up), banana, mint, leather, saw dust, pleasant glue. Pretty oaky on the palate with an associated bitterness: liquefied wood furniture, brown sugar, slightly burnt caramel. Good, particularly at that price. Got better the further the bottle emptied, except maybe for the last 5 drams when it turned downright salty.

    January 10, 2018 - By the glass to finish a great wine dinner at L'Aubrevoir, Athens.
    Quite on the alcohol on the nose interlaced with some caramel and honey touches. Firm and powerful but not heavy with a nice round feel for a spirit. Very good.

    June 24, 2017 - I would challenge the community to find a better quality Bourbon for less than $60 for 1.5L. For anything of this stature and quality you would pay $100 for single barrel or single batch. HSTALL gave a very good assessment of this back in April 2015. Agreed there are some superb Kentucky Bourbons out there, but I think this is a great QPR if you love American Whiskey.

    June 6, 2017 - Nose: Sweet with honey and vanilla, as is to be expected, then some rye, leather, oak and a hint of soap. Quite pleasant.

    Taste: Sweet and soft, with vanilla again leading the way in an almost brandy like fashion, than spices, rye, pepper, nutmeg and a long lingering taste of corn, sweet cokkies, oak, leather and again some spices from the rye.

    Long and pleasantly warm finish. Good, solid bourbon.

    November 22, 2016 - I really like this stuff. Smooth but flavourful. I bought several miniature bottles in a row. I should just break down and buy a full bottle! This stuff is fine. Buy some. You'll enjoy it.
