Beverage Testing Institute 89 points - Sweet corn and baking spices with a leathery dryness is backed with a peppery and aggressive richness and notes honey, nuts and black tea. Big and powerful.
Sweet, caramelized crème brulee aromas. A smooth entry leads to a fruity-yet-dry medium- bodied palate with nice caramel, vanilla and toasty oak notes. A robust, rustically styled bourbon with good flavor- needs a touch of water to tame things down.
