Nose: You can smell the youth on this. Honey, cinnamon, yeast and oak.
Taste: Vanilla makes itself present and I detects bits of peach and tamarind. Cinnamon rye spice is present and to me it’s pretty watery.
Finish: Gently warm with taste of white pepper and cinnamon.
Thoughts: Basically what you have here is young watered down Blanton’s. It’s sweet and a little fruity, and yes it is drinkable, but there are better budget options.
