Palate: Sweetness comes through immediately but the spice isn’t far behind. A little oak. Very smooth and has a little smokiness to it, probably the oak.
Finish: Oaky finish. But sweetness and spice are still lingering and their presence is known. Nice, smooth, and dry.
Overall Score: 89. I love this. It’s delicious and has an elegance to it because of the age.
I bought it a little over a year ago at a small liquor store based on the recommendation of the woman who worked there. I told her it was my birthday weekend and she wanted me to treat myself. I’m glad I took her advice. Absolutely recommend.
