Tasting Notes

"This is a bourbon with some oomph! Bottled at cask strength, the nose comes off as hot with a whiff of butterscotch. It's rich and heavy-bodied on the palate, with notes of vanilla, smoke, leather, and tarragon. The finish is long and sweet with a lingering hint of clove. It's an excellent bourbon, appealing especially to those enjoy boldly flavorful whiskeys."
