Review from bourbonv (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 109) View discussion on this review.
Purchased at:Given to me by the company ca 1994
Info on this bottle:Standard Japanese Market bottling
Proof Of this Bottle:86
Nose:Light and simple - a little oak and corn with some vanilla.
Taste:No burn and very little warmth. Some oak and vanilla with a hint of spice. Not complex at all.
Finish:This is the best part of this bourbon. There are some lingering candy corn flavor with a hint of oak. Without this finish the bourbon would be very bland and boring.
Overall:Not the best bourbon in my opinion. For being 12 years old it lacks in barrel characteristics and there is very little grain flavor. This product would be better at 90 proof or more. As it is I consider it a borderline "brown vodka".
