Very Good,
Strong Recommendation

Tasting Notes:

Worn leather, charred oak, and peach pie explode from the nose of this high proof bourbon. But what a surprise on the palate! Stewed blueberries, baked cinnamon, crème brûlée, and tobacco all come forward. Warmth fades on the finish like sunset on the beach.
