Nose: Bazooka Bumblegum (I kid you not), The beam peanut, caramel, and honey

Taste: Tobacco, signature peanut funk, oak, marzipan, and yeasty corn malt. Has a thick chewy consistency.

Finish: Fresh is how I would describe it before the bubblegum returns. Medium warmth and peppercorns with cinnamon.

Thoughts: If I couldn’t taste or smell the damn bubblegum I’d rate this higher for the good mouthfeel. That said, not a fan of chewing gum in my bourbon.

Score: 75 out of 100
