Nose: Supple with all sorts of fruit, mixed cereals, with lots of sweet oats and corn. A touch of menthol, and those classic notes of char and vanilla.
Palate: Rich and balanced, quite mono dimensional, but superb as the notes of cinnamon and vanilla mingle with a gorgeous delivery of smoky corn and sweet oak.
Finish: Long, remarkable.
Overall: A true bargain, an absolutely brilliant bourbon, with oodles of character.
