Tasting Notes

"The nose gets started with vanilla, Red Hots, spearmint, and sour cherries, along with oak and barrel char. "Junior" may be younger in age but is no soft touch at this proof, with big, booming and rich flavors of cinnamon and black pepper along with leather, cedar, and medicinal notes. The finish is lengthy with heat, highlighted by vanilla cupcakes. Ice rounds out the harshness and kicks up the vanillins, but actually even more so amplifies an astringent, tannic oak profile."
