"There's a French Toast quality to the aroma complete with butter and maple syrup. The taste follows the aroma pretty closely with cinnamon sugar taking over for the maple. And maybe even a side of smoky, crispy bacon. Even at this proof, the wheated bourbon is relatively easy to drink. The finish is bittersweet with savory smoke ending the experience. If you prefer, add a few drops of water or a very large ice cube. This brings out some cooked fruit (think peaches) to the party. "
