    If you like Sherried whiskies, you'll probably really like this. It's
    not sherried like a Macallan, which quickly yields to the oxidative
    notes and copper-caramel, this stays with the fruit, which integrates
    very well with the bourbon, and keeps the finish going for a very, very
    long time. I'm sad to see that this sold out from TPS already; I'd get
    another bottle. Maybe a local store has it... Kudos to [ed: the sadly now deceased] Truman Cox! I
    haven't had a bourbon like this before, but I'm definitely going to have
    more
    • Nose
      This is interesting! Red berries, jam, soft and sweet wood. Cinnamon.
      It's not quite Christmas, but it's close. Raspberry liqueur and syrup.
      Strawberry-rhubarb pie (there is nothing in that that I don't love).
      Coconut, rum soaked fruit cake with candied cherries. The fruitiest
      bourbon that I've ever had. Saw dust, polished leather, and minor
      cocoa+tobacco. For all the fruit and sherry-like flavors, this had a
      more distinctly bourbon background; you wouldn't confuse it with a
      sherry bomb scotch.
    • Taste
      Medium-body on entry, and rather silky. Quick burst of fruit - raspberry
      jam, cherries, and strawberries. The base is on bourbon spice, and then
      more on general bourbon, cigars, and cedar/sandal-wood. There's a
      punchy (note: my handwriting was terrible) bitterness mid-palate, but
      it's pretty balanced.
    • Finish
      Still some fruit (red berries, of course) with a smart amount of wood,
      and a very good cigar wrapper. Figs, dates, and dried cherries and
      cranberries. Still some bourbon spice and depth. Easily my favorite
      Abraham Bowman.
