Rowan's Creek is one of 4 Kentucky Bourbon Distillers, Ltd small batch bourbons. The others are Noah's Mill, Pure Kentucky XO, and Kentucky Vintage.
Nose: moderate oak, a little fruity
Taste: full flavoured, sweet, strong oak, moderate to strong spice, caramel, a little vanilla, and a little citrus
Finish: fairly long, with caramel and oak flavours lasting the longest
Balance: when I first tasted this bourbon I found it to be a little cerebral and locked up in flavour. I have found that with the bottle now open over one year that the flavours are completely opened up and delightful. This is a very nice bourbon, though I prefer its sibling the Pure Kentucky XO
