Nose: off a fresh crack I got a very muted profile. I let it sit and just got brown sugar. Palate: this is where this dram shines. Tobacco, leather, vanilla and cinnamon candy shell. It’s 58.7 proof and drinks like 90 proof. Outstanding Finish: slight Kentucky hug. Lingers shortly and then it’s gone. Overall: my bottle is a liquor king DFW store pick. So it’s more than likely a bit tastier. I’m very happy with this expression.
