Very Good,
Strong Recommendation

Tasting Notes:

Honeycomb, ginger snaps, black pepper, and golden pears weave through this full-bodied bourbon. Rich and mouth-coating, there is a distinct pepperiness that is front and center, which the sweeter, candied notes taking a supporting role. The finish is long, dry, and persistent.
