"The nose is whisper-light with hints of vanilla, dried fruit and candied nuts plus citrus. The bourbon is hot on the palate with an initial hit of sticky toffee, caramel corn, more dried fruit and vanilla. The medium-length finish finds the sweet fading into dry leather and strong spices, especially cinnamon."
