Neat. The pour is a deep, orange amber looking relatively red compared to other bourbon. Heavy, dense tears form with a determined swirl.

Nose: honey, vanilla bean, butterscotch, but lots of nasal sting that makes it difficult to appreciate without having a bit of ice or splash of water tossed in.

Taste: An improvement over regular MM adding softer honey and more vanilla, but not giving you a hell of a lot of complexity. Huge amount of alcohol heat detract from the experience, beckoning to be cut by ice or water. Massive spicy oak, cinnamon spice, and chili pepper chocolate come to mind.

Palate: Rich and smooth but still annihilated by excessive warming alcohol.

Overall, pretty good but needs to be on the rocks.
