Nose
Toffee. Earthy. Humus.Wet wood. Cubèbe pepper and long peppercorns.Raisins. Multilayered. Quite complex.
Palate
Medium bodied. Nicely flowing on the tongue. Delivers dried fruit then spices. The same layered structure as the nose. Maple syrup.
Finish
Refreshing and drying on soft spices.
Comment
A well knitted bourbon. No sharp edges but no excess sweetness either.

Macaroon cakeand almond marzipan,over-ripe pear and sweet pear,sugared almond.
Palate
Vanilla,sweet candy,polished wood, but surprisingly soft and gentle. Bourbon for beginners?
Finish
Medium,very sweet,and pleasant with no blemishes.
Comment
Ilove this distillery.This picks up where Maker's stops and is is producing whiskeys for non-whisky lovers and bourbon for women and the young.
