"There's a lot going on with the aroma, but the scents (aside from the sweet vanilla and corn) are on the light side. Pecan, cinnamon, leather, and tobacco along with gentle smoke are to be found as secondary notes. Slick on the palate, the bourbon has a medium-light body. Flavorwise, you'll the vanilla and sweet corn take over again along with some toffee and apple skins, but you'll find those subtle notes found on the aroma return on the finish as well. Closes with a bittersweet back note and mild smoke. Serve neat as the proof is just enough to enjoy as is. "
