The nose is bursting with caramel and wood notes. The palate starts with a nice spicy notes, then develops some acid notes which trail off with it. The finish brings back some of the wood from the nose. This one needs some elements. Air and water work well with it, bringing out more caramel on the palate as well as some chocolate and mint. Even more water reveals some pineapple notes.
Good bourbon but not in the same league with the 2012 and 2013 editions.
