Nose of burnt caramel corn and cinnamon. Palate is sweet with burnt caramel, corn-y flavors, and mapley notes. Quite drinkable and relatively smooth. The finish lingers for some time, with a punch of spice about 4-5 seconds in. Some alcohol-y aspects, however, keep the rating down. If the people who typically drink their bourbon on the rocks tried this that way, I think they'd be delighted. There's a good amount of flavor for 43%.
