Extraordinary,
Ultimate Recommendation

Tasting Notes:

Robust flavors of oiled leather, citrus peel, and French vanilla dominate this hardy bourbon. The plate starts deceivingly silky and refined before reaching a crashing crescendo of wood fire and caramel cream which stay on the tongue for a seeming eternity.
