N: Cinnamon buns, butter, raisins, vanilla, traces of oak. Classic Stitzel-Weller Old Fitz nose, really nice. P: Velvety, maple syrup, very full and thick, lots of spice. Rich. F: Lots of sugar, but then leaves a peculiar burning in the back of the throat. Besides the odd hotness in the finish, pretty good stuff, this bottle has held up over time.
Nose of candy cherries, Twizzlers, creamed corn, burnt white paper. A little soy sauce. Kind of "darker" as opposed to the "brighter" bourbons of sharp corn-caramel scents.
Palate is bit flat at first, but then reveals some tasty if unimpressive stuff. Medium-chewy (not as opposed to Big Chewie), medium sweet, and um. . . well a sort of straightforward drinkableness with a lingering bitter-tangy allspice-clove finish.
