I'm a little pissed at how much I overpaid for this bottle at a private liquor store in Vancouver. That aside, it's not too bad. On ice, the nose is sweet, lightly spiced, with cinnamon and oak, brown sugar and furniture polish, even a bit of cedar. On the palate there is a lightly perfumed sweetness, a yeasty sweet taste like sugar cookies. The melting ice has taken the bite out of it for sure. The finish is long and a bit sour.

Overall I'm enjoying this whiskey more than I would have thought. It is easy to drink with an ice cube. For a bottom-shelf bourbon it does the trick.
