"One of the better examples of balancing elegance and strength within Kentucky bourbon. Aromas of a great Thanksgiving spread - sweet potatoes, sage, stewed fruit, and pepper! And very nuanced for the proof as well. The palate is coating from front to back with pepper, caramel and char. With a little water, more melon and vanilla notes emerge. "
