Aromas of caramel buttercream, varnished cedar, dried fruits, brown spice and corn cake with a supple dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a cola, sassafras, orange tea, turmeric, saffron, and warming peppery spice finish. Nice complexity and vitality.

Amber chestnut color. Mature aromas of oak, vanilla, toffee, and leather. A heavyweight bourbon with a huge flavor profile-oak, leather, and molasses, turning quite dry with a spicy, nutty finish that is very long and warming.
