Aromas are sweet and fruitcake-like, with faint cigar smoke. Restrained, subtle flavors of orange peel, cinnamon and leather ride a medium-to-heavy body. The finish is extremely smooth, with a touch of anise.

Bright amber color. Aromas of lacquered wood, creme brulee, roasted whole nuts, and honeyed fruit cake with a soft, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, nicely balanced finish. A rock solid everyday bourbon that is sure to please.
