N: Sweet notes of caramel and maple syrup balaned by wood and white pepper. Some black cherry provides depth on the nose. Some lightly dusty notes and a bit of corn and some soft grain notes.

 

P: Sweet initially, warm on the palate. Gentle heat. Light presence of black cherries; some caramel. Vanilla present but not a strong note. A bit of wheat, a bit of corn, and moderate wood that's well integrated.

 

F: Sweetness, wth black cherries, white pepper, a touch of chili oil, some moderate wood and some light corn providing a bit of a sour note. The finish eventually goes just a touch more sour with wood and a light young vegetal note. Black cherries eventually emerge after that - a nice, long finish.

 

This has some good nuance and tastes like a younger Weller. The finish is just a touch off whre I'd like but this could age out into a great whiskey.
