N:  Rich, woody, lightly sweet.
P:  Dry with rye spice and wood, nicely balanced.
F:  Rye notes, mint and bay, fairly long.

A solid bourbon. 
Chris
 

N: Sweet, woody.
P: Just wood really, the sweetness from the palate doesn't come through.   Moderately oil.

F: Same.

 
Tim
 

N: Deep wood, round, mildly spicy, lush, fruity with cherries, hint of peach. A touch of vanilla evident as well. A bit of clove and far-off cinnamon. 

 

P: Good wood - solid oak. Light rye flavor, cherries again, a bit of plum. Mouth-coating, rich and verging on oily. Very fruity but not over the top; a slight bitterness.

 

F: Full, with the fruit notes taking the lead, followed by vanilla in tow with a little orange tagging along. A little bit of black tea early on as well. Nice tannins. 

 

This is a nice, round, balanced whiskey. Nothing sticks out but its not dull and lifeless. Quite enjoyable actually.
