Member Ratings and Notes
Nose of burnt caramel corn and cinnamon.  Palate is sweet with burnt caramel, corn-y flavors, and mapley notes.  Quite drinkable and relatively smooth.  The finish lingers for some time, with a punch of spice about 4-5 seconds in.  Some alcohol-y aspects, however, keep the rating down.  If the people who typically drink their bourbon on the rocks tried this that way, I think they'd be delighted.  There's a good amount of flavor for 43%. 
N: Rich molassas, rancio, vanilla, cherries.
P: Dark and syrupy, candy-like, molasas, spice, more, chery, and candy cane mint.
F: Incredibly smooth and drinkable.
This is great stuff.
