"This bourbon has a very light nose. There's caramel, spice, and alcohol there, but none of it is overly assertive. In the mouth, it's mellow, maybe a bit muddled, with toffee, oak, pepper, and even a brief appearance of banana. The finish is very short and gets spicy. Overall, none of the flavors are as defined as I want, making for something of an indifferent if inoffensive whiskey. "
