Tasted neat in a glencairn. Nose - Dominated by the standard bourbon notes of caramel, oak, and vanilla with some faint varnish. Also some fresh apples and . Palate follows the nose with caramal, oak, baking spices and orange peel. The rye spice lingers on the moderate finish without being harsh. Not much bite at all. As it had a chance to breathe in the glass, caramel and vanilla became more prominent on the nose while the palate become a bit sweeter. This is a good example of a well-crafted KY bourbon. I'd rate it better than the 1792 Small Batch or Single Barrel - the rye spice and heavier oak make this more interesting to me. Previously the BiB was my favorite from 1792, I'll need to do a side-by-side to see if this one edges out the BiB.
