Close “THE FINISH IS LONG AND LUSH.”

Burnished gold in color, this bourbon brings a mélange of aromas to the nose: honey, vanilla, oak, toffee and a suggestion of coriander are all there. The body is big, and on the palate, this becomes a very spicy, masculine whiskey with a complex spicy mustiness and notes of leather, tobacco, overripe oranges and a surprising smokiness not often found in a bourbon.

Close “THE FINISH IS LONG AND LUSH.”
Nose:
Outstanding aroma, kicked off by a spicy prickle. Satisfyingly deep, gently vanilla-ed and molassed with even a sprig of sweet mint.
Palate:
A rip-roaring waxy sweetness checked by a big buildup of vanilla-rich oak. Corn is chewy, and rye offers a rich textured background.
Finish:
Dries at last as the oak takes command, but rye offers extra depth and a layer of bitterness, as does a lingering licorice.
Comment:
Big, moody, uncompromising and complex beyond belief.
