Nose - Caramel, vanilla, oak, cinnamon, and red apple. That beam peanut note is lurking in the background, but it's subtle. The nose is not hot at all. Palate - First sip is thick and rich. Caramel, oak, vanilla, cinnamon and baking spices are the main players. The finish is long and rich, with brown sugar sweetness and oak spices lingering on the back palate. There's no alcohol burn at all, just a pleasant warmth. The intensity of the flavors and length of the finish is especially impressive given that this isn't a cask-strength bourbon. This limited release is a home run for Beam. The flavors are great, and not just your typical Beam/Booker's profile but something unique. I think the 107 proof works well and creates a really balanced whiskey that lets the flavors shine through. It's also a relative bargain compared to most other limited edition releases.
