Nose
Rich.Fruity. Dawson plums. Cooked cherries. With the sour touch of rye whiskeys. Beeswax.Nutmeg. Gets creamy and spicier.
Palate
Smooth at first. Then the spices dry it a little.Perfect balance.Marasquino cherries coated with chocolate. Toffee also. Quite rich.
Finish
Long,spicy. Slightly waxy. Nutmeg and ginger.
Comment
A bourbon for non sweet teeth. Rich, very well structured.
