It's rich in color, but the viscosity is low.

On the nose, it's a real sweetheart, with perfume-floral notes, vanilla, and cherry. Like most Bourbons, there is a slightly astringent and gluey aspect in the background that reminds me of building airplane models or applying lacquer to wood. On further nosing, spices emerge: cinnamon, clove, and perhaps ginger; a bit of tobacco, a bit of cocoa. All of the classic Bourbon qualities are there, and they're gentle.

On the tongue, there's pronounced tobacco and wood, with a molasses-like sweetness and no flowers. The finish is medium-long and spicy. There's heavy cherry and perhaps a bit of cocoa when you smack your lips.

A dash of water increases the sweetness and improves the mouth-feel substantially. This is a distinctly sip-worthy Bourbon, especially with water.
