Thoroughly American, ironically not available in the USA. The best cheap bourbon I have sipped. My 0.7L bottle was purchased in a Lidl near Copenhagen for 79 Krones, or about $12. Strong caramel and smoke flavors, with spice and oak following. Better than Benchmark and a pleasure neat. I thought it would be tough finding an everyday bourbon here in Denmark, but fortunately I was wrong.

Cranecreek (2017-05-23):
Curious too ask as how you see whiskey in an international view-What would be the top 5 whiskeys there in Denmark ? Not in $$ but in what do people purchase?

Cranecreek: Denmark's whiskey of choice is Scotch, though Irish coffee is popular too. Its hard to say what brands are most popular because people buy their whiskey from grocery stores here, and the stores only carry a few labels each. I can say all the big Scotch brands from the US are here, and they are just as popular here.

Cheap, explicitly solid body with variety of tasty notes. I am especially loving the aroma: pleasant vanilla and some smoky cigar. A delight to drink straight, but a big loss of potential if used as a mixer. Recommended everyone to try at least once! A very fine bourbon.
