N: Sweet nose - bubblegum up front, wood, light clay and earthiness. Light vanilla, a touch of marshmallow. Perfect wood.
P: Nice medium entry, moderately sweet. Bubblegum again in spades on the palate; light wood, gentle heat. Light maple syrup.
F: Gentle heat, lightly astringent wood. A touch of bubblegum, some oak, a little black cherry. Faint hint of peanuts and a little grassiness as it fades.
This is not an everyday drinker for me, but the nose and palate really did it for me in this particular tasting.
Palate: Very straightforward bourbon flavors, starts sweet, touch of mint maybe a bit of lemongrass
Finish: Slightly medicinal.
Overall: Very straightforward, not bad but lacking complexity.
Tasting blind, I actually guessed this was Maker's Mark.
