Extraordinary,
Ultimate Recommendation

Tasting Notes:

This bourbon pours a beautiful color of mahogany with crimson and gold highlights. The nose shows a beguiling mix of creamed corn, citrus candy, and toasted cinnamon stick. The complex palate unravels more barrel influenced flavors of vanilla cake and wood tannin with a powerfully dry finish.
