Tasting Notes

"The nose is not super intense, but you do find vanilla, char smoke, and other bourbon influences. There is more of the same on the palate with a touch of sweetness on the entry. The sherry wood character doesn't poke its head in until the very last minute as a dried fruit and nutty aftertaste."
