Tasting Notes

"On first whiff, there's mint, apricots, cream, alcohol, and something thick like paste. There's also a fair amount of alcohol and grain. The taste is grainy and fruity, with spearmint gum, rye spice, oak, mocha, and melon. Probably not much more than two years old, the bourbon handles youth well, with lots of brightness and enthusiasm. "
