Poached pear and brown sugar, baked apple with cloves, cinnamon, black tea, orange peel, sage, red hots, grilled corn husk, tamarind, nutmeg and yam lead you into the glass. Big rosemary-sage entry and dark caramel release the heat beast of cinnamon, cedar, ginger, stemmy pepper, lemon oil, cherry, pine resin, smoke, tobacco leaf burn, and a pleasant vanilla-Pecan finish that leaves a dry, satisfying sensation. Wild, hot rocket through the centuries to a smoldering hilltop and a fine clogging replete with déjà-vu.

This bourbon is a great example of why you drink bourbon. Wood, caramel, and a nice balance between them!

After sitting in the glass for 10 minutes; Has an ambery, sweet nose. First impression on the palate was similar to a scotch in the light peaty taste. A peppery, vanilla finish. After adding one ice cub the pepper is subdued which makes a smoother finish and allows notes of leather be tasted.

Sooo smooth. Just needs a couple rocks so as to not add too much water.
