State: KY

Peggy Noe Stevens 8.2 

Nose: Vanilla and maple syrup change to an almost evergreen freshness. Fudge notes and raisin bread. Orange marmalade for fruit note.

Palate: Interesting coconut and sweet candy bar. Coffee note washes the tongue and speaks to some of the tannins and wood sugar.

Finish: A smokey finish yet does not forget some of the sweetness. Dry and lingers.

Comments: This Bourbon unfolds to show off its complexity.

 

Susan Reigler 7.8 

Nose: Cornbread with roasted pecans, like flapjacks studded with nuts. Appealing, but not too complex.

Palate: New saddle leather with spice and cherry fruit. Overall, grain dominates.

Finish: Lingering impression of hayloft. Not unpleasant at all, but one-dimensional.

Comments: Whiskey drinkers who gravitate to the dry end of the spectrum will enjoy this. Given time in the glass, some brown sugar arrives, but does not sweeten significantly.
