"There's wood, alcohol, and spearmint on the nose, along with Beam bourbon's signature caramel and honey. Raisins and hay lurk in the background. The flavor is a bit flat, with peppermint, strawberries, chocolate, and oak. It's thick and silky, at times a bit flat. It gets drier on the finish. An interesting array of flavors that are never quite as pronounced or assertive as they should be. "
