Member Ratings and Notes
N: Sweet and floral with some deeper notes of dark chocolate and coffee.  
P: Quite woody, almost tea-like, with distinct tastes of dry tobacco leaf.  Dry on the palate but then...
F: ...gets sweet for a moment on the finish before going dry again with a hint of mildew.
All was going well in this single barrel until the very finish with that moldy off-note. 
Nose:  Corn, with a good dose of rye. 
Palate:  Old school Bourbon, caramelly and sweet with muted rye in the background.  Tasting blind, I actually pegged this for an old ND Old Taylor.  It doesn't have the strong rye notes I generally associate with Buffalo Trace. 
Finish:  Candy Corn.

Good and drinkable in the B/B+ range.
