TOFFEE,APRICOTS,SOME SPICINESS, AND A FAINT TRACE OF MARZIPAN,LEATHER AND ON MORE WARMING: CHAR. THIS IA A GREAT, FULL-BODIED, BUT SOMEHOW DELICATE WHISKEY. DAMN SMOOTH STUFF.
This is a terrific, full-flavored, yet surprisingly delicate bourbon whiskey. Beautiful aromas of English toffee, dried apricots, and wonderful spicy aromas lead to a smooth taste that glides along the palate.
Medium gold in color. The nose brings notes of butterscotch, clover, vanilla and old leather. The big body displays a palate with an almost wine-like character that balances intense fruits, honey and vanilla with a light spiciness that shows off the distiller's craft. The finish is long and warm.
