"The nose gives off a caramel popcorn scent with some vanilla and a little peanut brittle. But it isn't all carnival candy scents. There's a touch of char smoke there as well. The bourbon is warming on your palate with a nice compliment of sweet and savory notes; some more caramel and a little beef jerky. Soft barrel spices and a tangy finish end your journey. Overall, a solid little whiskey to put in your rotation for everyday bourbons."
