Bright amber color; smooth, lush and silky with lovely sweet vanilla oak; ripe rich and showing notes of roasted corn, spice and clove; aromatic tea, toasted oak and mouth-filling; generous, layered and balanced with nicely harmonious flavors.

Honey-colored with vibrant orange highlights, this Bourbon is aged at least four years. Give this spirit some time and space to breathe. The aroma has an almost gamy, meaty quality, laid over with vanilla, almond and caramel. On the palate, almond flavors give way to a rather hot and brawny but long caramel finish that dries to a pleasingly leathery tone.
