"This is decidedly different than its Watershed counterpart. While that one is bright and sunny, this one is dark and austere. Aromas of old barrels and dusty books. There's a touch of vanilla as well. As you taste, the whiskey is smooth with barrel spices integrated in the whiskey. Finish of decent length, and on the bitter side with a lasting taste of cinnamon red hot candies coupled with barrel char smoke."
