    Other reviews... A good, honest, unspectacular Bourbon which ticks all the boxes without for a moment trying to go into superdrive. 87.5 points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2020

    ...Freshly cut oak and chewing tobacco to start, followed by hints of green apple, wood chips, and a warm, wet sharpening stone. On the palate, the wood heightens and becomes extremely bitter. This whiskey’s saving grace is that it’s extremely palatable in cocktails. 40% Alc./Vol.
