Tasting Notes

"The nose knows — this fragrant blended bourbon begins by wafting a sweet combination of dark and light fruits from the glass. Apricot and maple fade into flavors of tobacco leaves and ripe blackberries, which burst onto the tongue upon first sip. The tastes of cocoa and malt then enter the scene before giving way to notes of dry tobacco and coffee flavors. Its finish is short but sweet, with satisfying notes of molasses and toffee."
