Very elegant, bright and silky smooth, with honey-kissed summer fruits, subtle tropical fruit (papaya, coconut, pineapple), gentle caramel, sweet corn, and soothing vanilla, along with a dusting of cinnamon, nutmeg and crisp mint. Pleasing, gently spicy finish. The most impressive aspect of this whiskey isn't its variety of flavors (they are fairly traditional for a bourbon this age). It's the integration and remarkable balance of these flavors! It's also perilously drinkable.
