Excellent,
Highly Recommended

Tasting Note:

Sunny sawdust, spicy buttered caramel, and a hint of deep raisin come to mind when merely nosing the glass. Entreating a sip of this well-loved bourbon brings a resplendent spiciness of the rye component forward with bites of clove and nutmeg that are quickly followed by softening elements of sweet corn, vanilla wafer and a touch of bitter cocoa nib.
