- Color: Burnt Copper Nose: Nutmeg, buttered biscuits, lemon and orange citrus notes are immediately recognizable.
- Node: Quite beautiful and filled with wonderful classic bourbon notes and very little alcohol burn.
Palate: Burnt maple, candied cherries, chocolate, caramel, toasted cinnamon, toffee, and vanilla. Wonderful sweet qualities that are accompanied by very enjoyable burnt/charred flavor that reminds me of the toasted sugar on the top of Crème brûlée.
- Finish: Dark baking cocoa, orange citrus, black licorice, and a continuation of that delicious burnt sweetness from the palate. The finish is relatively long and leaves the mouth begging for another sip.
