    Thanks guys. I was kinda on the fence, but BR is decent quality at this price point (~ $70) I think, and as I said been meaning to branch out beyond brown shoes (although I guess it's a moot point while we're all stuck indoors).

    A good looking shoe.

    I think those shoes look pretty good. Makes me wish I had picked up a pair - in brown - too.

    I'm curious how these turned out. Did you end up keeping any?

    Well I figured I'd work my way up to it, next up is paskettio's (with meatballs of course).

    Great info. Thanks! It was a review I saw on the cask strength that made me hesitant so this is good feedback to balance it out. We like a high-proof just fine but tend to lean toward rye for those. And, especially for my wife, we typically prefer bourbons with sweeter notes like you're describing. I'll probably give this a try now. Thanks again!

    Perhaps try a Puni for the pasta paring??

    Caramel, butterscotch, malt are what i get the most but the complexity means theres a LOT goin on. Finish is quite smooth though.

    Doesn't pair well with velveeta shells and cheese, but then that's not likely the bourbon's fault.
