The nose is nice with bourbon caramel notes. The palate comes on sweet, then picks up woody notes and develops a chewy mouthfeel. It feels hot for its strength. The finish is dry with peppery notes and then a very slight mint. Water makes it soapy so I'd stay away from the faucet.
This is a very nice bourbon, in the traditional "old bourbon" style with a lot of oak showing through. It's nicely balanced between the oak and sweeetness.
