N: This nose is crazy, redonkulous spicefest, stuff I've never smelled before in whiskey, like oregano. Wild. P: More of the same on the palate, a f***in spice rack, green tea! F: About 30 seconds after your last sip you get the lingering taste of chocolate ice cream. I had to eat half a pastrami sandwich to get this taste out of my mouth. This is a must try, but its just a little rough to me, so just B+.
Nose has a milder, oaky bourbon quality, with rye, and I swear I get peanut butter. The palate is rich, tasty, oaky ryed bourbon. Only mildly sweet, and the oak is rather heavy, but I don't think it's a ruining-it kind of heavy oak -- though some sips verge on slightly too bitter for me -- but not enough to dampen my enthusiasm. A bourbon for sipping by the fire.
