I had tasted this recently at a little house party recently with which I had recorded tasting notes.

Nose: With time in the glass the scent was fleeting and hard to grasp made a little water would have helped unfortunately that wasn't a thought in my head at the time. Anyways I had detected brown sugar, caramel, fall baking spices, pepper, and mint intermingling inside.

Body: With a swirl of the glass I noticed long thin yet slow moving legs which would indicate a medium/full body. The mouthfeel confirms this.

Taste: Sweet with toffee and caramel, vanilla likes to ride along. Spice and oak take the backseat before the finish.

Finish: Drying and spicy with oak, leather, and spice most notably cinnamon and black pepper. Maybe a little white pepper too.

Overall: Descent I can understand how this receives reasonable marks its not a simple bourbon but it can't receive 5 stars either. This could be a good starter whiskey for new whisk(e)y hobbyists. Cheap and reasonably flavored.
