What is the reason for the price difference of this product. No distinction seems to be made as to explanation in the advertising. I was given a bottle of this bourbon and want to repay my gift giver in kind. Thank you.
I don't drink a whole lot of whiskey, but I've tried a quite a few. This is hands down my favorite. Smooth and tasty, at a more than reasonable price to boot, far superior than many costlier whiskeys. Bourbon lovers may lament the alcohol content isn't high enough, but that may make it more appealing to others looking for an entry bourbon, not everyone will agree though. (Didn't know prior to this that the recipes changed yearly, but both years I've had it were equally enjoyable to my palate).
Despite living so close to bourbon country, it's difficult to find all the different brands in the stores in my area. I purchased this as a gift for my husband (along with some bitters and single old-fashioned glasses) and he LOVED it. I'm not a bourbon drinker, but I used the tasting notes on this page to guide my choice. My husband said they were very accurate, and that the bourbon was so good on its own, he was reluctant to make an old fashioned with it. The online ordering and shipping process was very easy. I will definitely use Wine Chateau again.
I ordered it as a gift, so I haven't tried it myself. But the person I gifted it to is VERY happy. He says it's very smooth.

We had a blind bourbon tasting - 7 high-end bourbons. This came 1st, 2nd, or 3rd with everyone!
