"This is a bit like seeing an old friend in a stranger. The nose is standard but has the foreshadowing of something better: clarified butter, char, and the aroma of sweet wheat. The palate is a nice melange of butter, cinnamon, and caramel. The finish shows a little maturity with some wood tannins and wisps of smoke. While this isn’t bourbon, it has some similarities to one with a name that rhymes with Teller."
