The nose on this is really great with caramel and oak. It reminds me of the nose on the old Elijah Craig 18 year olds. The palate follows through well; it starts with that nice sweet/oaky balance, and then turns nicely spicy and earthy which is what sticks around into the finish.
This stuff is just really good bourbon. It's complex and rich, elements that are lacking in so many of today's bourbons.
