Drunk neat.

Nose: Vanilla-dominant with fruitiness that decreases each time it is poured. Some minty freshness in the background. While it sounds nice, this mix unfortunately ends up smelling slightly chemical.

Taste: Slightly less sweet than maple syrup, but it has all its syrupy consistency. Again, I detect weak mint. As it warms, the rye makes an appearance with a increasingly stronger spiciness, though it never becomes overpowering. Simple, but frank tastes.

Finish: Rye spiciness and toasted oak, soft and very pleasant. Warmth is subdued and short.

Balance: It's a simple and easy drink, but it still maintains the "full flavours" mentioned on its bottle.

Will I buy it again? The price is right (30$ CAD), but life is too short for sipping average spirits. The nose is a major let-down, and, though they are strong, the flavours are too simple to be interesting.

Thinking about the tastes, I think they might actually make good, fake bourbon balls. If I ever try it, I'll post my impressions here.
