Tasting Notes

"There's a lot going on with the aroma including toasted peanuts, caramel, barrel spices, toasted grains, and fruit which all together is reminiscent of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. If you add just a splash of water the sweet corn comes through as does a fruit mélange. However, this is still a high proof bourbon so those fruit notes are just the accent. More spices and char smoke come through on the palate and the bourbon feels rich and slick. Overall a solid and fun dram. Enjoy as a nightcap; you deserve it."
