Served neat. Smells of honey, brown sugar, and what I would describe as "sweet alcohol". The alcohol is noticeable but has a sweetness which makes it less strong.

This has a thick, full body. Smooth going down, but did leave a slight burn from my throat all the way to my chest which lingered, but I didn't necessarily find it unpleasant.

I enjoyed the flavors-- smoky maple syrup, brown sugar, smoky woodiness, and there was a spiciness from the slightly higher alcohol content. A few ice cubes could help cut it a little if you find it too strong, but I didn't find it necessary and enjoyed it neat.

Great finish which left a nice lingering sweetness. Overall this was a winner in my book. Solid, smooth, sweet and strong but not overpowering.
