If you do taste it neat, it is good, but then your tongue starts to sizzle and your epiglottis threatens to have a warp core breach. When that happens, you have to separate the saucer section and in the end Captain Kirk dies a lame death. Add some water.
Adding some water brings out the spices you would expect from this high rye content bourbon. The sweet vanilla honey bourbon notes are there in the finish.
$70. Highly recommended.
