Buttery hot cornbread with chilli infused honey notes. Long pepper and a cough syrup edge. BBQ pepper steak with a lovely plum sweetness.
Big sweetness up front, wonderful vanilla notes, then the sweetness of poached peaches in honey and apricot jam.
Dries on the sweetness of vanilla and white peaches.
Not huge or too punchy, shows lots of complexity though and represents a decent solid Bourbon.
Cocoa powder, a little dusty and bitter. Oak spices, but then the embers of a bonfire.
Citrus and lots of it. Puckering. The peel of oranges and bitter lemons. Gets rounded out by sweetness of nutmeg, cinnamon and a smooth caramel.
Really long. Harbors more oak than the palate, but balances everything nicely.
Palate flavors are really well pronounced, but punctuated by the oak on the finish. A good go-to Bourbon.
