Color: Deep, rich chestnut honey hue, due to aging for 8 to 12 years in char #3 new American oak barrels.
Nose: Just-ripe banana, ripe apples, butter cookies, vanilla bean.
Palate: For a whiskey that’s 47% ABV, this bourbon manages an impressive balance of flavor and heat straight out of the bottle. It’s round, plush, and sweet on the palate, with well-integrated peppery spice notes.
Finish: The vanilla and caramel sweetness that starts from the first sip lingers on the finish, with a drying note of toast and spice.
