"For once, here's a youngish craft distillery release that doesn't taste like sawdust! It's by no means perfect, but the flavors are fairly well rounded to hit all the important notes - spice, fruit, vanilla, caramel, toasted nuts, leather, tobacco and malty cereal. A fair amount of hot, chili pepper spice reminds it's still a whippersnapper, but one with some refinement."
