This very reasonably priced American Whiskey is made in Kansas from locally sourced corn, rye, wheat and barley, and aged for 18 months in American oak. It is a golden hue, with a touch of red. Aromas of caramel, vanilla, and sweet tobacco leaf waft up from the glass. The initial mouth-feel is pillowy soft and silky, with sweet corn, peppery rye, and the very gentle chocolatey hints of yerba mate. The bite comes mid-palate, leaving pepper and milk chocolate on the finish. This is a soft, complex, interesting whiskey that is far more sophisticated than its price would suggest. Highly Recommended. 92 points. DBH
