Rating: 57/100 – Average | Solid, ordinary

A solid example of a budget high rye bourbon. It has some nice spice to it that I think comes through well in a cocktail, but otherwise there isn’t that much going on here. At this price point, if you want a high rye bourbon to sip neat, I think you would be better off with Four Roses Small Batch or Smoke Wagon Straight Bourbon if you can find it.
