Kind of a muted but still nicely round corn-caramel flavor, still full of flavor but not an ass-kicker. The oak is here in a fair dose, but not too much. As it opens up the nose gets really candy-like and alluring. Altogether extremely drinkable and good stuff, with a little of the paint/varnish quality I find in many old bourbons. If you come across one of these somewhere, it's worth trying to get.
