Tasting Notes

"A heady bouquet of oak, caramel and vanilla appear initially, with undertones of cereal grains and chocolate. Surprisingly, this whiskey has little alcohol detectable on the nose. The palate is intriguing, with a brief hit of vanilla sweetness before the oak and cinnamon notes come in. This is a very complex whiskey with clover honey balanced by the spice notes and a bit of a black pepper bite. The finish is complex and will hold even the most jaded whiskey drinker's attention. A truly excellent bourbon whiskey. "
