It is not as easy to drink as bt but has loads more complexity and overall better taste and better pour. Other reviews highlight the value and I concur. This one is worth a buy. If you've done mm jack and Jim and wondering where to go I'd say head here. It's a premium bourbon that is very affordable and easy to find. For me it's a bar staple

This is one of the best bourbons. Quite smoothe too.

smooth drinkable bourbon a little better than buffalo trace but not enough to justify the double the price

Great flavor and a pleasure to drink. Goes down and easy and opens up nicely. When it's neat there is a hint of musk, vanilla, spice, and of course barrel. Add a little water and it changed to have intense spice(cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves), orange rind(was suprised to find this), and carmel.

I love this whisk[e]y. Admittedly, its hard to fault anything coming out of the Buffalo Trace distillery and I certainly haven't been able to find one other than the bottom of the bottle. The sweet and fruity flavour of this corn whiskey makes for a luscious combination and the extra proof helps bring out the true manliness, and by that I mean wellroundedness of this beverage. This little fella even made it into a few of my wedding pictures. Even she can't help liking this one.

Disclaimer: I love everything that comes out of the Buffalo Trace distillery, so Im a bit of homer when it comes to this stuff.
It found it similar to Buffalo Trace-- pleasantly sweet with a long dry finish-- but oakier. They must age it longer. Highly recommended.
Blantons sells for $40/ bottle at Total Wine. Cant beat that value.

This is a fabulous bourbon, mildly sweet and well worth the price point.

A little lacking in the finish and body compared to some of their other efforts, but well made. Lean, almost more in the style of a Tennesee Whisky. A touch pricey but unlike many in its price range, worth it. As a side note we opened a bottle from 1993 which, while much the same in many respects, had a somewhat rougher and hotter finish to it, more reminiscent of bourbon stocks from that period. It's obvious that more care and attention was being paid to bourbon starting in the 1980's and we are starting to see the benefits.
