Some bourbons are balanced or complex; this is an all-around versatile pour with initial notes of lightly toasted oak, brown sugar, and butterscotch.

The opening aroma is grainy and corn-like, with background touches of paraffin and walnut butter; aeration stimulates green peppercorn, cotton candy and dried fruit scents that are a tad flat. Palate entry is crisp, prickly; by midpalate, the flavor highlights the toasty barrel char as tastes of maple, vanilla bean and dark caramel dominate this stage. Ends fiery, grainy, but lean.
