The draw is lightly sweet with vanilla, The exhale has vanilla, with a sweeter tobacco note. The nose picks up much more of the tobacco, with vanilla bourbon, and light, creamy butterscotch notes, and a lingering bourbon vanilla on the tongue. The bourbon is more on the vanilla side, with little-to-no heat. I've only had one other bourbon juice, that had similar taste, so I'm not sure how achievable a straight-up bourbon taste is (however I have had a rum-flavor juice that has a big rum taste though). All that said, this is still an enjoyable vapor, and I do pick up all the flavors represented in the vendor's description. Their is very little throat hit, so I'm guessing the VG content is in the 70-80% range. This would pair well with a bourbon drink, or evening vaping in general.
