Member Ratings and Notes
Deep amber. My notes are short and simple, but this is one of the best bourbons I have ever had. Nose is charming, oozing with vanilla and a back-end with plenty of spice. The palate brings a non-astringent wood and brings the heat. I wish I had written more (too busy enjoying this one), but having tasted on multiple occasions, this only seems to get better. A-/A [8/22/14] 

Nose is rich, oaky with red wine and maple syrup.  Palate is thick, sweet and woody as hell, trailing off with light citrus into a woody finish.


I love these old, woody wheaters.  This is a flawless example of the style.
