Like many Bourbon this age, the flavor is very mild and smooth. It lacks the taste of woody flavors or the typical bourbon 'heat'.

After the first sip, it is obvious that there is no flavor of wood. It is sweet and has a very smooth, mellow taste. The flavor is sweet and has a very mild taste. When mixing it with soda water, the flavor will become more mild and less noticable.

Buck Bourbon Review 3:

An 8 year old Bourbon that is good for mixed drinks. Straight up is way too strong for most people. If you like a light Bourbon, order it. It is not a strong Bourbon. If you're looking for a non-alcoholic Bourbon, stay away.

1.Let's start with the good stuff. The price; it's already reasonable for a Bourbon. It's not a high-end Bourbon, but it is worth the money. The 8 year old 8-Oh is also really good from what I've read and tasted. It is smooth and easy to drink. Basically, if you like sweeter flavors, try it. The finish is neat. It probably won't be enough to really make you feel the sting you want in your mouth. But, there is a hint of cinder and smoke when you swallow. It is good. It is sweet. It seems to be more on the caramel side than the vanilla. The taste is smooth.

The smoothness is pretty much the only strong point. It is what makes it good. There will be a hard time making this Bourbon full-bodied.

The taste is smooth like melted marshmallows. There is almost no taste of bourbon, but more of the caramel and melted marshmallow side.
