I killed my OP 12 a while ago so was interested in opening up a replacement. Think the last one was from around 2009. This one is from 2011.

Nose: sweet malted barley, light sea breeze, fermenting pears, oak sawdust, mango peal, straw notes
Palate: Big dried grassiness, cracked barley, white pepper, Bartlett pears, mangos
Finish: moderate, grist and white pepper

Popped an Ancient Age today. I know it is June but oh well. Not as sweet as many bourbs with a lot more rye and spice notes. Vanilla too.
