First of all, this 13 year-old bourbon deserves its name, “Cream of Kentucky!” So smooth and “creamy” on the tongue but still has a decent “Kentucky hug” going down. Annnnnd, kudos to the packing team. I got a bottle of this from a different company that had a damaged cork cap. I believe that allowed air to get to the bourbon and take some of the smoothness away. THIS bottle arrived well-packed and unscathed!
