Well. Much hyped and interesting but too much of a neophyte to discern the brilliance. Might need to try more.

Not sure if I loved it or hated it. Super spicy and savory. Nutty. The glass was super important.

Almost got a maple bacon note; price point wise, I like this better than the 20.

First drink of the week.
Sad to see this baby on its final drops. Luckily she has a twin as well as two younger and one slightly older sister. Sadly, the eldest ran off a few years ago perhaps never to be seen again.

Celebrating 4th of July with my mother who is from Louisville and always told me that Pappy's was the best Bourbon on the planet. After tasting these I agree!
