One of my first real endeavors with Bourbon, and a good one at that. I couldn't believe the alcohol content on this bugger at a whopping 143 proof, but it went down surprisingly smooth.
Nose: Corn, nuts, vanilla, some warm fruit, like orange, followed by a pleasant musk and leather smell.
Palate: Warm, with a dominance of the bourbon grain coming through. This being a Kentucky Straight Whiskey, it really shows. Lots of corn. Digging deeper, I find some cranberry, vanilla and oak. Really, really pleasant.
Finish: More vanilla, oak, with a touch of almond. Kind of subtle, but very pleasant.
Not a half bad bottle to start into the world of Bourbon! Good stuff here.
