Intro: From Wikipedia:   

The brand was named after John Thompson Street Brown Jr., who together with his half-brother George Garvin Brown, opened a wholesale liquor business that later became the Brown-Forman corporation. The brand was originally produced by J.T.S. Brown and Sons in 1855, and ownership of the brand eventually devolved to Heaven Hill, a company founded in 1935.

Review:  

The Rub... 

Strong oak and wood smells coming through.    

The Nose... 

Lots of fume!  Dear god it burns the sinuses!  It’s almost like a musty basement skunked smell like stale air.   

 

The Taste...

Here we go, first sip...come on cheap bourbon don’t let me down...burns the lips, tongue, roof of mouth, gums, soul...slight burn on the swallow.  After taste is ok.  Very woody and some sweetness.  Second sip...I just swished it around...bad idea...more burn...dear god!  Like eating a handful of jalapeño!  EFFF!  Ok Jesus that didn’t count.  Third sip...a slight sting but I’m numb now so whatever...corn!  Oh man corn and bread but not corn bread.  This is like corn in the front bread in the back, two very distinct flavors!  Not that good.  Not that bad.  

Is it worth the £?  <— that the British pound...rubes! 

I think this is bottom shelf stuff going for $8.99...yeah if you’re looking to get drunk this’ll do it.  Collection worthy...yeah if you’re looking to get drunk this’ll do it...
