"Quite aromatic with vanilla, maple and toasted grains with char and oak notes adding depth. The spice factor is moderate which allows the sweet notes to dominate. The bourbon is soft on the palate, but the proof brings a pleasant bite to the proceedings. Still, it's fine to drink without added water. The finish has some cherry and chocolate notes along with green herbs sprinkled in. Another solid offering from Heaven Hill. "
