From an undisclosed source, this is one of the most perfumed oak noses on the bourbon market. Other 10yr old bourbons do NOT smell like this much age. Rich varnish with intermittent apple skin and pear aromas. Some orange bitter and cherry as well. This tastes like the liquid version of the “bourbon candy” that seeps from the barrels in the warehouses. The 94 proof while maybe not the favorite of the diehards is a great drinking proof, which means you can happily consume neat and enjoy all the chewy chocolatey, nutty oak flavors this very rare and allocated bourbon has to offer.
