Aroma - Smells like a dessert. Cinnamon, pecan-pie, orange peel, vanilla. It’s awesome. Taste - Wow. Nose transfers perfectly to the palate. All the same notes. There’s a touch more rye spice here than in the nose. Balance is amazing. Overall - Unbelievably smooth for the proof. Extremely long finish, great viscosity. Everything you could possibly want… this whiskey has.
