Delightful and smooth. This is excellent as a sipper or in an old fashioned. I do not recommend mixing this with anything like coke or ginger ale. Stands up on its own perfectly.

This is my in the top 5 of my all-time favorite bourbons. It might even be #1 over Papi VW. All the Forrester bourbons are good but the “Bottled in Bond 100 proof” is the best. ??

Highly recommend for any bourbon enthusiast.
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.
