Bomber sampled right after the 12yr Elijah Craig version. The latter has the upper hand, but this version was top notch, as well. Never thought I'd say this, but maybe it was a bit too bourbon-heavy.

Lacks any aroma out of a snifter. No real tones during or after each drink. Has no real complexity. Taste like a smooth stout. Not impressed.
