Nose: spicy orange skin with a bunch of molasses and vanilla. Hints of honey. The corn is easy to identify. After a while, there are hints of pine resin. Maybe not as expressive as some other bourbons (Buffalo Trace is my benchmark for standard bourbons) but nothing to complain about either. Mouth: the pine resin grows stronger (maybe a tad too much now). Quite some caramel rounded off by vanilla. Still some orange notes and spices (clove, hints of mint). Finish: short. The flavour profile from the palate falls down too soon. A rather soft bourbon, easy to drink but lacking some balance and punch in my opinion.
