    I agree. It's a little rough around the edges, but not to its detriment. I like it also.

    I concur. Bought a bottle a few months ago and it could have been MUCH worse. I don't feel bad mixing it either.

    Re: Fightin Cock ain't bad

    I just got an airline sized bottle of FC103 from a local store. First impressions: brighter and slightly rougher than Evan Williams but immature compared to EC12. I could easily see having a glass of this three times a month.
    Man, this bourbon shows off a honeydew melon flavor that is sensational! Borderline over the top, but so unique!

    Also, I heard Dane refer to FC103 as "The Kickin' Chicken." I like that nickname.

    Jeff and I agree that this is about the sweetest bourbon out there. I've called it 'bourbon syrup'.
    It is inoffensive, even pleasant, but complex it is not. Then again, it's not priced in the 'complex' range, either.

    I actually like to use FC as a mixer. For the price it's a better than most in the same price range and at a higher proof.

    I try to avoid cross posting, but I wrote a more thorough review on the "other" FC103 thread:
