N: Initially spicy, some toffee and butter. Some oak and very very light vanilla.

 

P: Rich mouthfeel, soft, smooth. Juicy Fruit gum, vanilla, drying with a bit more toffee. Vaguest hint of banana, peach.
 
F: Smooth finish, more Juicy Fruit, nice and sweet but not overly so. Vaguely banana and vanilla.
 
Not bad. It's a little restrained and doesn't quite develop into anything but it's a different and welcome take on a sweeter bourbon profile, getting some fruit for that. Usually those notes are kind of thick and overpowering but they just add here.
