For a bourbon that was distilled almost 100 years ago, this is really quite sprightly and "alive." Sweet and good, cinnamon, clove, allspice, and altogether kind of apple-y. It's really like a bouqet of great spices (but not spicey) in the mouth, with a cider-pear-honey kind of mild sweetness, and a perfect warmth. The kind of thing you'd sit with by a campfire and drink a ton of. Excellent and memorable stuff.
