"This is a uniquely clean and fresh tasting bourbon. Notes of vanilla, spearmint and pipe tobacco mix with the warm spice trifecta of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. It lacks the telltale bourbon leatheriness and robust flavors of most straight bourbons. If you're looking for something that doesn't pack as much of a sweet, heavy wallop, then this might fit the bill. It would be absolutely buried in a cocktail, but would make a decent summer refresher on the rocks."
