Palate: Sweet cream and vanilla on the front end. leads to a slight cinnamon spice with a bit of citrus.


Finish: Medium linger with a warm sweet coating.


Overall: Many thanks to Ed Carey for gracing the Library with this bottle. As a big Wheated Bourbon and MGP fan, this one spoke to me before I popped the cork. Another brand of the past that is bringing back the history, S.N. Pike's Magnolia has roots back to 1849 in Cincinnati, Ohio. The overall experience with this pour exceeded my expectations after seeing the Age Statement of 3 Years on the label. It drinks slightly older and has that delectable sweetness from the wheat that I am truly a sucker for. This is one to try if you are a fan of the wheat grain.


Library Rating: 8.1 / 10
