"Vanilla cream, peanuts, caramel, and apple peel are found on the nose. The bourbon is not too plush or oily with the high rye content bringing out a drier and tangy finish. The cognac barrels aren't super noticeable on the palate, but the cognac flavor comes through after you've tasted and exhaled. This experience is one you'll want to repeat making it a pleasant way to end an evening."
