Peaches at first, spicy heat with a preponderance of alcohol follows. The more I sip, the more I taste. Walnuts and sweet woodiness. Very creamy, as I've seen in others' reviews, which makes for a pleasing sipping experience. Not sure if this will become a go-to. But it's got potential... especially since some bourbons tend to open up and transform the closer I get to the bottom of the bottle.
