Color: Golden Amber
Nose: A unique yet balanced mix of sweet and spicy. Vanilla, syrup, creamed corn, spicy oak, pepper, pine, hay, brown sugar, dried fruits, grains.
Taste: Medium-full bodied mouthfeel. Oak spice, subtle rye, black pepper, caramel, oats, barley, and subtle mint.
Finish: Long and tasty. Spicy oak is dominant. Leather and hay also linger for lasting warmth.
Conclusion: I really enjoyed this bourbon. It has a rich flavor profile that is fairly unique, yet well balanced. At a $50 price tag, this bottle is a great one time purchase, however, not something I would keep stocked at the home bar.
My Rating: B+ (Very Good)
