n: licorice and brown sugar on fresh leather.

 

p:  Whoa, hot.  Add water. Tar and varnish on top the the obvious bourboniness.  Me likely.

N: Varnish, coconut, assorted nuts, a lot is rye spice. Vanilla bean and cookie crumbs. Dense rich nose but very hot alcohol vapors that burn.

 

P: Very woody! Like licking a barrel. A lot of bitter wax mixed with bitter green leafy veggies.

 

F: Syrupy Sweetness emerges and lingers with a touch of orange peel

 

With water. Toffee Sweetness emerges with lighter cereal malt and floral notes. Distinctive red fruit jams (cherry, black grape) appear on the palate. A lot better with water.
