The nose is sweet with a bit of wood. The palate is strong on vanilla with a bit of spice in the background and some oak notes as well. The finish has rock candy and wood.

 

I'd say I like this just a little bit better than the current version of Kentucky Spirit. This one has a bit more wood influence and a bit more complexity, which could be due to older whiskey being used. It's good but not something I'd go to great effort to hunt down.

The nose is very oaky with lots of spice, varnish and some nuttiness. Theres also and underlying red fruity sweetness (strawberries and cherries) reminiscent of cough syrup. Most of the notes picked up on the nose follow suit on the palate with good body and black coffee/ tea. The medium length finish is spicy. B/B+
