Before I opened this, I was already impressed by the high ABV and reported high rye content. Apparently, this expression is a marriage of barrels that are 4-6 years old. Onto the tasting:

Nose: Pecans, maple, unsalted nuts, ash, sandalwood, rye, vanilla

Taste: Mint, oak, nutty, black peppercorns, white pepper, seeded red chillies

Finish: Builds to the finale of more maple, oak.

Dry on the delivery and a wave of complex flavours on the finale. This is fantastic, a new addition to my core bar stocks.
