Nose: Sweet mash, cotton candy, vanilla, toasted oak, nutmeg, and baking spices.

Mouthfeel: Intermediate

Palate/Taste: Vanilla, caramel, butter, oak, rye and wheat compete as a secondary grain in a sort of jumbled way, but it isn’t harsh.

Finish: Shorter with little warmth, there’s a sort of interesting toasted marshmallow, oak and heavy vanilla finish, but it’s over far too quickly.

Thoughts: An easy sipping bourbon with sweet flavors being predominate, but the short finish, and jumbled palate notes prevents it from achieving greatness.

Score: 83 out of 100
