Member Ratings and Notes

N:  Dry and woody, typical BT wheater nose.
P:  Dry Cognac like notes, vanilla, ending with sweetness.
F:  Vanilla Bean

One of my favorites of the BTSO first release, well integrated and pleasant, if a bit simplistic.  A good dessert whiskey.

N: Spirity at first. Dry wood. Lightly sour and vegetal.

P: Mouth coating. Somewhat sweet, black cherry, white pepper, wood, a little cinnamon, very light toffee. 

F: Warm, drying, becoming bitter. Some of the fruit notes from the palate. More oak. A finish that's on the short end of medium long.
 
Too closed off to be good. Not much to enjoy.
