"Much more wood up front on the nose then the small batch expression. Obvious hints of vanilla, toffee and caramel are coupled with a faint leather and ripe black fig aroma. The taste does not disappoint as the extra heat from the 100 proof alongside the rich woody notes make for a wonderful sipping bourbon. The finish is medium long and for the most part very dry."
