Nose: Wisps of subtle cinnamon, vanilla and fragrant oak.
Palate: Chewy vanilla caramels and more cinnamon spice, intensified by the oak spices but never getting out of hand. A little pepper note appears later on.
Finish: A drying finish, with oak spices giving you a happy wave goodbye.
Overall: The added time in the cask has done the Jim Beam bourbon good.
