Wine Enthusiast 90 points - The base aroma is buttered corn-on-the-cob with aeration bringing additional scents of vanilla and cinnamon. The palate entry showcases sweet breakfast cereal grain; at midpalate the corn dominates so thoroughly that you know that this could only be one of the best straight bourbons from Kentucky. Ends spirity and heated. One of America’s benchmark spirits. - Paul (12/1/2007) - 90-95: Superb/Highly Recommended (Dec 2007)

A strong, Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey, possessing flavors of vanilla and nut. Handcrafted at the Star Hill Distillery in Loretto, Kentucky, it was the country's first small batch bourbon and is one of only a few to include wheat in its mash bill instead of rye. The 90-proof whiskey also contains corn, barley malt and a sour mash component.
