Tasting Notes

"Aromas of peanut brittle, toasted corn, and soft vanilla cream greet you on the nose. Gentle leather and The bourbon is warming with a cinnamon bite. Nicely integrated barrel spices and sweet vanilla on the palate. Finish is lengthy with bittersweet and tangy notes along with an ever present charred note."
