Fruity aromas intermingle with light tobacco and maple. Sweet and spicy on the palate, the flavors start with sweet brown sugar then turn to intense cinnamon spice and even further develop with coffee and dark caramel on the finish.
Though complex and flavorful, the extremely high proof of this nine-year-old small-batch Bourbon means it won’t be for everyone. Dose it with plenty of water to enjoy the dry character with notes of vanilla, leather, orange peel, clove, red-hot cinnamon and a long caramel finish.
Very sweet. Brown sugar and caramel hit first, with apple and toffee that follow. It packs a good amount of spice that makes your nose tingle, much more than any bourbon I’ve ever had. On the back end, a scent of leather is present.
At first, you think the sip is going to be harsh because of the nose, but it surprises you with a very rich and creamy sweetness. You’ll definitely notice the 120 proof, but you’ll focus more on the great flavor. The palate consists of the vanilla, maple syrup and brown sugar that the nose foreshadowed.
Hot and long lasting. Full of cinnamon, oak and leather. The sweetness from the nose and palate carries through to the end. It can be challenging at first, but very satisfying by the end.
This one is really easy to love. If you’re having a tasting and you’re not sure which bourbon to buy, this is a pretty safe bet. It might be a high proof for many people, but the flavor is hard to dislike. Even throwing a cube in it doesn’t dilute the flavor very much.
