Nose: Delicate butterscotch notes
Palate: Dry and earthy with almost a Cognac like rancio, then sweeter burnt sugar notes

This one has a nice balance and complexity to it.

Regal, rich, deep, oaked, bourbony bourbon. Whatever they were doing at this distillery, I don't think anyone is doing it anymore. Great stuf with good depth. The drawback here is that the finish becomes too spiritous after time, it would be amazing stuff without that.
