    That's because you were.

    Ha. No, I meant that if I had tasted it blind, I would've guessed it to be at least double the $21 I paid. I honestly think it's that good.

    Loved squire's comments! Hard (impossible?) to beat at its price point as a slow sipper/palate warmer/mixer.

    I had my first pour of this the other night, and I too think very highly of it. I tasted it neat, and then added a splash of water to proof it down just a tad. Both ways were excellent.

    I plan to spend a bit more time with it this weekend.

    After making a long and circuitous journey through the majority of the regularly available bourbons, I have come to the conclusion that this is in someways the alpha and omega of American whiskey. So good. Drinking an old-fashioned of this with brown sugar as we speak. Dangerous.

    Yes, please be very careful not to add too much sugar.
