    Smells and tastes a lot like bourbon. A very oily bourbon. Simple and sweet with easily defined characteristics. Pairs well with food because it's flavors are strong enough to shine through. A good price to quality ratio. 
    • Nose
      The bourbon cask influence is strong. Corn oil, cherries, vanilla, dry muesli,  banana, and a touch of dill at the very end. 
    • Taste
      Syrupy for a single grain. Buttery dessert pastry, coconut cream, vanilla, green bananas and caramel, and a touch of licorice.
    • Finish
      Pink grapefruit, ginger, and soft oak tannins.
