Nose: Intensity - 2.5, light pepper, rich cologne notes, camping under the stars, eucalyptus, mint.
Palate: Great caramel & vanilla notes. . . very cliche to describe a Bourbon like this, but these notes really shine here. Apricot, cigar boxes and cellars.
Finish: Length - Medium, lemon, cedar, light smoke, fresh berries spearmint.
Overall Impression: Starts out with great spicy, minty notes & when water is added the nose makes you want to set up a tent in the woods! Classic caramel & vanilla notes shine on the palate with light cedar & more mint notes prevailing at the end.
