Overall: A huge thank you to Off Hours for providing this bottle to review. From the get-go, I anticipated a very young MGP profile based on the color and the nose. I was a bit surprised once I started sipping when more and more flavors started hitting the palate. The honey was a very nice compliment to the corn on the nose. Although there is no age statement, the bourbon tastes a bit young, but in no way is that a negative. The lighter tones help to push forth vanilla, and later, the pralines and cinnamon. The medium linger on the finish created a nice warm coating and even after the swallow, the flavors were evident. I'd love to see this distributed locally.
