This Bourbon can trace (pun intended) its history as far back as 1771 which is before the state within it lies (Kentucky) was even formed. In terms of objective recommendation I can go no better than Jim Murray. In the copy of his impressive 'Whisky Bible' that currently sits to my left Mr Murray says 'as an everyday bourbon there is little to match this one'. If you haven't tried this before I urge you to. It'll make a great Mojito as well.
This deep amber whiskey has a complex aroma of vanilla, mint and molasses. Pleasantly sweet to the taste with notes of brown sugar and spice that give way to oak, toffee, dark fruit and anise. This whiskey finishes long and smooth with serious depth.
