"On the nose, this smells like you expect a standard, no-nonsense bourbon to smell like: corn and caramel, a light fruitiness, a hint of cinnamon. In the mouth, you get honey, rosewater, pepper spice, tobacco, and vanilla sweetness. A bit of char and pine show up in the short finish. It's about as recognizably bourbon as bourbon can get without being outstanding in any sense. "
