Peggy Noe Stevens 8.9

Nose: Bing cherries and slices of crusty bread. Small jolts of coffee and warm marshmallow.  Light gingerbread and hazelnut, then oak and wood sugar.

Palate: Ginger and cinnamon break through on the first sip then settles in on molasses and caramel apple. Lovely texture that is both deep and rich.

Finish: Warm, sweet and dry finish with a nice structure that keeps on repeating.

Comments: Would be my campfire Bourbon to sip.

Susan Reigler 8.3

Nose: Brown sugar and toffee with pear and slight nuttiness. High proof  is getting in the way of other aromatics. Time in the glass lets more fruit loose.

Palate: Caramel bomb with dark fruit and a little pepper.

Finish: Very clean. The sweeter notes fade gradually and dry to light oak.

Comments: Nice balance, but the blending of Bourbons may have submerged some of the flavors rather than creating a more complex drink.
