    everything you would want from a cask strength bourbon,great mixture of spices, honey and vanilla,the mouthfeel is fantastic and a long smooth finish with a slight burn.

    • Nose
      Alc up front like a punch in the nose. Little less than the one I had in teh UK, but still some breathing is needed. There is a heavy "dbase" or earthtone in teh nose That then moves to cinimon and vanill and gets richer by the minut 
    • Taste
      Light But that fads to full burn ... lots of rye and floral ... surprised by the flora and then some vanilla
    • Finish
      Alc then oak and vanilla, rye and more alc. I think this really has to sit for a while to let teh alc burn off a little more ....

    • Nose
      Delicate aromas of grain, spices and citrus fruits like oranges with hints of caramel and vanilla
    • Taste
      A full and creamy taste of raisins and vanilla notes include caramel, ripe fruit and flowers. Touch of spice.
    • Finish
      Beautiful balanced aftertaste of vanilla, honey and citrus
