"This 80-proof bourbon presents strong aromas of baking spice, vanilla, and dusty wood with sweet corn, caramel and smoky characteristics rounding the nose. On the palate there are peppery and spicy notes along with a strong corn sweetness. There is a notable charred barrel smokiness that accentuates an underlying burnt toffee and dark nougat sweetness. The finish is slightly bitter and dry with a hint of sourness and a strong lingering woodiness. "
