****Highly Recommended, F. Paul Pacult (Spirit Journal): "Old gold/Palo Cortado sherry color; unblemished purity. Intensely grainy in the first inhalation after the pour; eight more minutes in glass allows for a baked banana-like aroma to emerge that goes well with the corn graininess. Entry is subdued, cornbread-like, and buttery; midpalate grows in richness as the taste profile remains creamy and buttery but now turns a touch woody/oaky/resiny as well. Ends on a medium-long, creamy note that's more semisweet than full-out sweet. Complex and understated. (Mar 2011)"

92 points Robert Parker: "There is little information available on this Willett bourbon, but it reveals plenty of spicy, smoky wood notes, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and an attractive delicacy and gracefulness with no hard edges. Although not the greatest bourbon I tasted, it is a very fine, competently made, impressive offering. (May 2013)"

From a single barrel 8 to 10 years old, and bottled in a pot still decanter replicated from the pot still used by the distiller. On the nose, there are notes of honey, butterscotch, and some char. Smooth and creamy sensations of mild butterscotch and char, with some sweet cherry and citrus tartness before fading into a long, lingering, oaky finish.
