Tasting Notes

"There's a decent amount of char smoke on the nose, but it's coupled with significant amounts of cherry fruit and baking spices. And since there's also a bit of a buttery pastry thing happening, that is likely to bring cherry pie to your thoughts. On further nosings a bit of dried herbs appear. This makes the bourbon have a good balance of savory and sweet. On the palate the bourbon is fairly tangy with a medium body and a nice alcohol bite. Wouldn't add more than a couple of drops of water if that. The finish is pleasant and of moderate length with more of the cherry flavor shining through. A very fine bourbon to add to your collections."
