I find this a really nice wheater, with just enough edge to let me know it's a whiskey, but comfortable, like a feather pillow that has a few quills sticking through the ticking. As compared to Maker's Mark which is like a foam pillow. Both are comfortable and supportive, but something is lacking in with the foam one. Same with Maker's, at least to me, it's nice, but it is too plush.

Nice, smooth wheated bourbon with good body and a bit of bite from the 100 proof. I generally prefer rye bourbons but this offers a nice change of pace. From my understanding, this is made at Heaven Hill / Bernheim distillery and may have replaced Old Fitz BIB, but I actually prefer this to the Bernheim wheat. No complaints, especially at the price ~$30.
