A buddy of mine recently splurged on some nicer bourbon (than we poor grad students are accustomed to drinking) and it is just delightful. The only downside is the alcohol provides a bit more burn than I would like, but man, the nose on this thing is incredible. It smells like someone melted some vanilla/clove butterscotches in a glass. The taste has a bit more wood and brown sugar and CARAMEL. Of course, I can’t pick out as many elements as these guys, but I still enjoyed it. 8/10, but factor in the price, and its 7.5/10.
