The nose on this is very Woodford with medicinal pot still notes. The palate starts sweet and then hits mint and quickly transitions into that Woodford medicinal flavor which turns quite bitter; the bitterness lasts into the finish which is also a bit astringent.
N: Pepper and cinnamon, a touch of allspice and a lot of wood. A black cherry darkness that is just on the right ide of syrupy. The wood flirts slightly with becoming green and popsicle-sticky for a moment but doesn't commit. Some orange and a touch of vailla.
P: A lightly charred note, very strong wood presence. Pepper, light cinnamon. Some light orange and heavier black cherry presence. The wood is right up at the line of being bitter and too strong.
F: Black cherry leads and is followed by oak. Lots and lots of oak. After a while this starts to sit on an uncomfortable triad of tart, bittter and sweet.
It's less aggressively woody than Seasoned Oak, but the sweetness almost gets away from it a little too often. Somewhat better than regular Woodford.
