When I opened the bottle I could get the aroma of what I've always thought of as excellent aged bourbon. The taste is smooth with absolutely no bitterness. .

As the Skynyrd song goes, "I've drank enough whiskey to float a battleship around..." Yep. Started drinking white label JB back in the Army in 1991, and drank it until about 4 years ago and switched to the Black and haven't looked back. No hangover, smooth, relaxes you, and just an all around good Bourbon. Thanks to Triple 7 liquor in Stevensville, MT for carrying it for me. I would recommend this to anyone. I can see why it's 4.8 stars out of 5 with 210 reviews.
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
