Nose: Intensity – 4; Black tea, cedar, musty, oak, spice, vanilla, sooty
Palate: Eucalyptus, earthy, more vanilla, cherry, rye grains coming to the forefront
Finish: Length – Medium to Long; Salty, maple syrup, woods – think Pacific Northwest rainforest
Overall Impressions: Spicy rye notes on this Bourbon Whiskey tickling the nose accompanied by leather and must… That wonderful vanilla (Big Vanilla!), followed by woods and farther
down the road a little salt.
