Member Ratings and Notes
N: Awesome.  Lovely. Very exotic and floral.  Then comes the purple smells and some oak.
P: Big cherry wood, flowery, oaky, and I like it.
P: Wow.   Transforms itself several times from pure sugar to flowery nectar.
Eminently drinkable, but not for the wood wimps. 
Richer and sweeter than most bourbons, especially considering the 45% abv.  The long, warming finish makes it all the more satisfying.  Smooth.  Remember to let this one rest in your mouth for a time to get the extra flavors.  Rich, yum, did I say rich? 

Retaste:  Better than I remembered it.  Dried cherries and cinnamon, and sweet.  YUM.  A/A-
Astringent citrus and spice nose, a bit of syrup.  With a little air over the palate there's intense heat... lingers with rich sweetness and bright clove notes.  
Nose: Nice huge woody bourbon flavors, like an old library.  One of those noses that will just blow you away.
Palate:  Starts right in with puckering levels of wood, but a bit of a diluted quality.  I want it to be cask strength to match the power of the nose.  Corn sweetness and a briny rye-spice fight in equal parts for attention but mostly lose to the wood, though the brine manages to stick in your craw through the finish.
