Right here’s a extra budget-friendly whiskey providing from the oldsters behind Michigan’s Fox & Oden. At a said minimal of simply three years outdated, this can be a significantly youthful bourbon than that model, however it depends on the identical excessive rye, MGP-distilled mashbills. The identify is claimed to be impressed by “generations of American aviators” whereas the squat bottle bears a hanging resemblance to Elmer T. Lee. And that’s about all I’ve received in the best way of backstory. Let’s give it a go!

At three years outdated, it virtually goes with out saying that this might use a couple of extra years within the barrel. The aroma showcases a bland, cereal sweetness however little of the uncooked corn and sharp oak notes you would possibly anticipate. Nonetheless, vanilla and a mushy trace of oak are about as a lot as might be extracted from the glass. The palate affords up a stunning oiliness, particularly at such a modest proof, with a pleasant warmth and balanced sweetness that helps to offset an unsurprisingly bland, if immensely approachable, profile. Notes of marshmallow fluff, caramel candies, and inexperienced apple provide a bit to chew on earlier than a fast end of gentle spice and oak. It’s truthfully higher than I anticipated. However there are young bourbons even cheaper than this that supply a superior ingesting expertise.

84 proof.
