Nose: Thick caramel with strong vanilla and pepper spice. There are some cherries here too, an almost maraschino-like note.
Palate: The spice continues here on the palate with cloves and nutmeg added to the pepper we got on the nose. There are heavy bitter orange notes too with more of that maraschino cherry.
Finish: Medium finish with the spicy rye taking the lead.
Overall: This is a tasty and involving bourbon that displays a strong vanilla character after its ten years in oak.
