96–100 pts.Wine Enthusiast: December 31, 2003
The opening aromas are complex, including milk chocolate, marshmallow and freshly mown hay. Palate entry is sweet and mildly oaky; by midpalate, there’s an embers-glow warmth, followed by woodsy tastes of vanilla and almond butter. Finish shows a touch of honey. One of the finest whiskey values in the world.

This medium-amber Bourbon has a deep vanilla nose with hints of dark berries and mint. The body is medium, leaning toward heavy, and the palate shows notes of oak, leather and vanilla. As in the nose, some dark berries come into play. The finish is medium.
