Drank: Neat, in a glencairn
Nose: Young oak, caramel, sawdust, banana, cinnamon, licorice, pepper, honey, corn

Thoughts: For a four year old bourbon this has a pretty good balance and drinks well for it’s age, but there is not mistaking its young. At MSRP it’s a bit overpriced, but hey its funding some U.S. brandy distribution so there’s that.
