Tasting Notes

"The initial nose is very sweet and full of honey, hay, caramel, almond, and even port wine. That fades into heavy oak and spice, which is what awaits the palate, along with white pepper, sawdust, and cinnamon. The finish is short and dry, with pepper, anise, and oak. It vanishes so quickly that you can hardly remember it. A higher proof might have allowed this bourbon to shine a little more. "
