Maple candy nose.  Spice and wood.  Water brings out more flavors, lets vanilla custard tastiness shine through with spice and wood straight through the finish.  Yum yum yum.

Great nose! This is liquid candy, but the wood and alcohol balance it out, and as a result does not come across as TOO sweet. Despite the 65% alcohol, it isn't overpowering, and is reasonably complex. Cutting with water does bring out the "vanilla custard" flavor AH described. This is an uncut (cask strength), unfiltered wheat-based bourbon, and is immensely enjoyable. Doesn't have all of the traditional characteristics one associates with bourbon. Seek this one out.

n:  Purple sugar plums, damp cedar forest.

 

p:  Oooooohhhhh yeaaah.  Spiced vanilla.  Christmas potpourie.  Cigar humidor.  Thick and creamy texture.  This is right at the pinnacle of bourbon for me.
