Tasting Notes

"This is a fairly light bourbon, hewing closely to the typical flavors of the spirit: vanilla, leather, and tart orange show up on the palate. The finish is dry with a touch of almond and woodiness. While not too assertive, its 90-proof would benefit from a little more depth or sweetness to balance it out. "
