(snippets from three ratings cut and pasted together)  The nose brings visions of old Kentucky, and Kentucky smells like the bottom of a whiskey barrel.  It looks like Kentucky swamp in the spring time.  First taste is all bourbon, next is a nice malty finnish.  Caramel, caramel, caramel - and it burns on the way down.  Long bitter finish. Better than the original.
