Taste: Very smooth, almost too smooth for my taste in bourbon. Very strong flavors of vanilla and chocolate.

Finish: It almost finishes like a cherry cola mixed with chocolate malt. Very light and soft.

Overall: An extremely smooth wheater that drinks very easy as promised. When I mixed it with coke I actually didn’t care for it surprisingly. Still if you can find it cheap and don’t want to be challenged I’d pick one up.
