The nose on this Smoke Wagon UCUF is incredible. However, the overwhelming spicy rye dominates the palate and even the finish of this neck pour. I am having a hard time picking up other notes because of the rich and creamy heavy rye pepper. This is a little too spicy for my personal tastes, on this first pour.
Having said that, this is a very nice bottle of bourbon if you like that peppery spice (which most bourbon lovers do). The creamy mouthfeel and spice are a nice combination. It’s just not my thing. I can certainly see how some LOVE it. If you are a lover of heavy rye spice heat, then Smoke Wagon UCUF will be a winner for you. See my detailed review below.
