A sweet, enticing, bourbony nose, really outstanding. Very caramel-y and very, very vanilla'd.

 

Hmm, the palate doesn't live up to the nose, but it's certainly tasty enough... if a bit middle-of-the-road and typical. I think this has a nice candy sweetness with medium-level tannins, though the distiller's tasting notes suggest otherwise. Anyhow, I'll happily drink a bottle with you any day.  B/B+
