GSN’s Remarks: Ah, bourbon. If you were to try and explain what it is to someone who has never tasted it, one scent of this new release would paint a thousand words. Woody, sweet, nutty, spicy, and somehow carrying the Kentucky summer heat. The entry is exceptionally smooth for a near cask strength whiskey, and only carries a slight burn. The flavors are light and airy, with the flavor of the oak and its char carrying the day. The finish is very long, with a tannic finality. A terrific sipper, especially over a large single rock, this latest JSC release hits all the right buttons. GSN Rating: A
