Overall: This right here is exactly what I want in a 12 Year Bourbon. Your typical notes along with sweet, spicy and just the right amount of oak. I've been a fan of Lucky Seven since trying the 14 Year last year at a bottle share in Kentucky. I immediately went out and bought the Holiday Toast and fell in love all over again. The Hold Up is no exception. This is one to bring to a gathering of whiskey enthusiasts and I would put money on the fact the majority would agree with my assessment. A nice treat.
