"There is an interesting complexity of flavors achieved by Treaty Oak in the blend of these two different bourbon recipes. The youth of each whiskey can take too much of a starring role at times, but the contrasting recipes do make for an exciting union. Aromas of creamed corn, honey, and leafy herbs come through, while the palate is bright with chili and vanilla notes accenting a pleasantly oily structure."
