The aged distillate was filtered once though a plate and frame filter (no chill filtering) in order to maintain its proof.

"Scents of honey, bananas, pears and golden apple waft from the glass along with some faint phenol notes. These sweet and fruity aromas are repeated on the palate with a taste similar to Honey Nut Cheerios cereal sprinkled with cinnamon and clove. Some lemon oil tartness and slight bitterness come out in the finish. This bourbon definitely needs a big ice cube to smooth out the flavors and soften the alcoholic heat. "
