N: Granola, honey, de la rosa candy. One of the weirdest bourbon noses I've ever experienced. P: Peanut butter, sweet and sour pork, coffee and candy. Water mellows the weird notes, but a nice richness remains. F: The sour notes stay on.
Ridiculously bizarre, but in a good way. (I swear I didn't eat anything with peanuts before I tasted this stuff). Lots of fun.
N: A virtual spice factory on the nose, with sharp rye spice but also something more herbal like sage (or a certain type of medicine which can be bought in California). P: Big huge attack from the abv, following by quite nice combination of spice, wood resin, and savory sweetness. P: Mainly on the wood, but in an enjoyable way.
