The nose has a lot of complexity with caramel, peppermint, wood, pepper and bay. The palate is very spicy with lots of peppery notes, even some cayenne, rounded out with just a touch of caramelized sugar sweetness and a bit of acid. The finish keeps the pepper and the acid in a nice balance.
I really like this one. The peppery character is something you don't find in a lot of today's bourbons, and it's complex and well balanced from nose to finish. Good stuff!
