The nose on this is really nice with a balance of sweet candy notes and wood with some fruit and wine noes in the mix as well. The palate is very sweet, with caramel and maple syrup, but lacks some of the balance of the nose. It's quite hot for being 100 proof. Adding water produces some sour, acidic notes.

 

I've never been much of a fan of finished bourbons, and this one doesn't convince me otherwise. The nose is beautiful, but the palate doesn't quite keep up with it. It's good, but not exceptional.
