A classic Kentucky straight bourbon from Heaven Hill, aged for around four years. This is quite a smooth and easy style of bourbon.
Great Value in Bangkok
for the price...
cheapest bourbon I can get. not bad at all. very drinkable.

THAT is way fair (giving it five stars)....it really blows away bourbons that are double the price....it's unique for such a young rascal. Sweet, notes of pecan and peanuts. cotton candy and earth. it should cost about $25+...

I pay about 690 baht (£13 GBP) for ONE LITRE bottle of this in Bangkok so it's become my day to day staple bourbon. Other than Benchmark which is also similarly priced here, all of the other 'big brand label' bourbons which are more well known (and all Scottish malt) cost about x2 to x3 what they do in the UK...same goes for wine out here..
With such excellent value it serves to remind me of the taste of whisky and is a fair enough evening nightcap, and good with beer/chaser. Also most Thai girls don't like neat bourbon or malt, preferring Chivas or Red Label with mixers at best so I get to drink almost all of it myself..

and it's a good pedigree. after having broadened my palate and gotten more experience, i came back to this after having thought it way too young and vegetal/oily....this (new packaged) version is really a solid pour for the price. HH's lower shelf is still very mid-shelf. definitely recommended.
