One of the best noses you will find on a bourbon at this price - very rich with caramel, vanilla, and spice. Seriously, this stuff smells amazing. The taste is also excellent - sweet and very smooth despite the 100 proof. Head to head I would prefer Four Roses Single Barrel, but Rowans is definitely one of the best at this price.

This is the bourbon that got me into bourbon, and it's still one of my favourites. It's not for the faint hearted, but certainly more accessible than Noah's Mill. Let it sit in the glass for a few minutes before you dive in and you'll be rewarded. The hints of caramel in the taste is what I love the most about this bourbon, smooth and warming, it definitely gives you a proper 'bourbon smile'!

Such a nice smooth bourbon. Without a doubt one of the best for the money.

This is a very sweet and special bourbon. Let it sit and breathe in your glass for a good 20 minutes then have a sip, dance it around inside your mouth for a good 10-15 seconds, swallow gently, and you're rewarded with a very smooth, sweet and immense flavour followed by a long dry fruity, apple & pears after taste. And all this from just one sip !
