"At first sniff, one might think you were about to sip a Hot Toddy made with tea instead of a bourbon! The bright nose also includes brown sugar and candied orange peel. On the palate this whiskey starts mild but the flavor creeps in with a wisp of smoke, burnt marshmallows, and black pepper. This spirit insists you don't overlook it or you might miss out!"
