The Republic of Texas didn’t last long. Neither will this whiskey.
I generally prefer rye whiskey or single malt to the corn-sweetness of Bourbon but when a cocktail requires it, you need a good go-to bottle. This is on the pricey end of the scale but very nice in a spiked apple cider drink or a Boulevardier.
