* subject to change; 2015 bourbons listed here for reference:
Basil Hayden's A unique, singular bourbon still made in small batches from small grain, just like it has been since 1796. Light bodied, opting for finesse rather than brute strength on the palate. Blessed with rich hints of peppermint, pepper, citrus overtones, and a spicy, warming finish. Golden amber in color.  A study in subtlety, making it a perfect choice for a session whiskey.
Makers Mark Born from limestone-purified spring water from a spring-fed lake right at the distillery, with a foundation of red winter wheat rather than traditional rye. Along with naturally malted barley and yellow corn, resulting in a double distillation within a copper pot still. Aged in charred white oak barrels resulting in rich fruit mixed and a hint of spice aroma on the nose, followed by a well-rounded palate of spice, vanilla and oak.
Jim Beam Honey Jim Beam's classic Kentucky straight bourbon infused with real golden honey and liqueur. The result is smooth with complex notes of caramel, oak and vanilla.  There is a floral nose up front, while the palate offers caramel and toffee along with honey. As you'd expect, honey lingers richly in the soft, smooth finish. Especially good on the rocks.
Maker's 46 The first line extension to the Maker's Mark range since the '50s, Maker's 46 is essentially the standard expression with added spice. This was not intended to compete with the core expression, instead it's a cousin to it, something different for those that like spicy bourbon. They add this extra dimension by inserting seared French oak staves into the barrel.
Jim Beam BondedIt's Jim Beam and then some. Honey and spice on the nose, along with oak, cherry, and butterscotch. It's a bold taste, rustic but refined, with vanilla, strong mint, bitter chocolate, and pepper. There's also charcoal, tobacco, and hay. Finish is short but warm, with more wood and mint as well as a bit of caramel. Water tames a bit of the bitterness and accentuates red fruits, chocolate, and pepper.
Old Grand Dad 114Nose is leather, a hint of tobacco and Charleston Chew vanilla. Palate has a nice viscous mouth feel with some burn, candy corn, tobacco and rye grain. Finish is long, spicy and oaky.
