This stuff changes with time, as to be expected. The changes are dramatic, and worth the wait.

Give this stuff at least 15 minutes in the glass before you put your big ugly lips on it and start sucking in up like the toad you are. . . only joking.

The nose will impress you with its delicacy. The wood hits first and then dark chocolate, tangerine, star fruit, and vanilla bean ice cream.

Palette: White truffle, white pepper, rye bread with butter, more star fruit, lemon, seared rib eye steak fat, charred driftwood that was wet with some sea water upon burning in the bonfire.

Finish: Macadamia nuts, white oak, Chinese pepper, toffee, pecans.

This, my friends, is among the best bourbons that I've tasted in the past few years. I went to a bar that offered a 3/4 ounce tasting shot, which I took advantage of, and then I ordered a full 2 ounce shot. Zut alors, that sour mash masterpiece was good! Not sure of the batch number.
