I think I have seen a few folks speak fondly of this, but not sure. I like the name, 'sounds very, well old. I see it in just about every poke store here in Louisville. So, tonight I picked a bottle up. WOW, is it cheap. $7.20 for a 750ml.
Now, I must confess I do not have an educated pallete when it comes to bourbon. I tend to drink it because it is drinkable and gives an excellent buzz. That said, I would like to have a more difining pallette. So, i think I'll start with this and ask some of you very generous gentleman to please point out what I should be decerning and or looking for in the way of flavors, scents, ect.
To me it taste like bourbon but maybe a bit more harsh than some I have had. It has a mellow sweetness to the aftertaste yet a earthy or barkieness (is that a word) to it. So, I guess I'm saying a bit harsh up front and a sweet and earthy finish. Please understand, I drink it with ice and water... . Which is how I drink most all my bourbon. I can't imagine this neat. But if advised to do so, I might try it.
Thanks for any feedback, etc.
