Nose is faint initially, but then some vanilla and oak emerge. Inital flavor impact is chocolaty and rich and stays that way all the way through the finish. Seems to fade quickly on the first few sips, but then gains some legs as you get further into the glass. Very easy drinking but kind of a one-note-wonder.
Nose of toffee, with aspects that are earthy for a bourbon. Palate is pretty full-flavored, again with earthy, slightly smokey hints not typically found in a bourbon. Finish is very long. This is closer to scotch in some ways -- maybe this has a high barley content? I don't think so, but whatever. It's pretty tasty bourbon with decent depth, and not overpriced. I like it.
