A very traditional set of bourbon scents consisting of vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, and oak. Its mild for a high proof bourbon and its aromas are straightforward with no frills. Its basic and unexciting, yet solid nevertheless. It has a touch of cherry and spice near the end, but it’s fleeting and not at all impactful.
A surprisingly lively burst of flavor that ranges from sweet fruit, to rich caramel and spicy oak. Its heat can get in the way of the flavors at times, but doesn’t muddle or suppress them to a detrimental degree. This is a full-flavored affair, with adequate complexity and a very satisfying impact.
Oak, spice, and dark cherries ride the finish out to its natural conclusion. The heat is long lasting and doesn’t make it easy to forget. It’s a bit too dry and more thin than I would have liked, but thankfully there is a nice pop of vanilla and candied apple near the end that is short, but beneficial.
