Ok, I just popped the cork on a bottle. Let me tell you this stuff has a distinct smell as soon as you take a whiff. I'm going to try and post tasting notes for it later on but here are just some quick 1st impressions based upon a very small pour. The smell jumps out at you like I said, almost like buttery popcorn and almost sweet-like. I really liked the smell. Taste is almost like corn whiskey/whitedog but with other flavors imparted. Some bourbon characteristics but truly in a class on its own. Overall I liked it, sweet with no noticable bite. I'll post tasting notes either later on or tomorrow but if you can get a bottle for around $27-30 it is something unique to try!
