Waxed bottle. Served neat.
Appearance: Very deep reddish amber, one of the darker whiskies I've seen. Thin, delicate tears fall in 360 degree circumference on the glass.
Nose: Spicy, candied orange peel along with dried rubbed spicy barbecue meat. Still, some major league alcohol sting in the nose like Maker's Mark but this can be quickly ignored in favor of toasted wood, butterscotch, brandy, brown sugar, sea salted true caramel.
Taste: Better than the nose, very little to no alcohol sting despite the whopping abv. Spicy orange, chili pepper, cinnamon spice, and something warm/spicy/fruity like apple pie.
Palate: Heavy, viscous, extremely easy to enjoy. No biting tannins, not overly oaked, still maintaining fruitiness and thick dessert like characters.
