This 12 yr old balances between the vanilla flavors picked-up from the bourbon casks and just enough of the fruitiness and depth from a few months sitting in first-filled sherry butts. Its pleasantly sweet and silky smooth. Vanilla and honey are center stage. Followed by caramel and oak. Then towards the finish, a bitterness starts to develop. Not overwhelmingly, mind you, but its there. And it intensifies in your mouth as you keep drinking it. Thanks to the sweetness of the spirit, that bitterness never goes out of control, but like I said:"its there." Furthermore, its a bit over priced.
