N: Dry and with some pepper and oak. Slightly piney. A little maple develops but it's somewhat faint.

 

P: Moderately mouth-coating. Heat - white pepper, cinnamon, a very slight dash of cayenne. Some light maple and caramel. A bit of toffee develops. A touch of orange; a little bit of plum for a second. Some cherry.

 

F: Warm with pepper and cinnamon; drying quickly. Oak shows up towards the end. Moderately astringent.

 

There's something about this bourbon that's a little closed off and it doesn't quite show its colors. It doesn't quite hang together for me.
