"The rich copper tone of this bourbon is a keen indicator of the bold flavors ready to burst forward. The nose is almost tense with competing aromas of spiced molasses, sugar cookie, and mint leaf. On first sip, the Yellowstone 9yr coats the palate from front to back with an oily richness. Pepper notes (from the rye and 101 proof) skip back and forth with candied ginger and caramel forming the backbone of the overall profile."
