Carefully balancing sweet with spice, the nose exhibits aromas of honey, cinnamon, seasoned oak, barrel char, baking spices, and sweet gingerbread. The scents are offered with ample intensity, showcasing their depth as well as overall complexity. It’s an impressive introduction to the sip.
Warm honey complements a concentrated mix of cinnamon and baking spices. As the spice envelopes the taste buds, flavors of tobacco and charred oak mingle in. Rich and full-bodied, the whiskey isn’t shy about making its proof known, but does so with intensity of flavors and pleasantly warming heat. Deliciously satisfying, it’s a wonderful mixture of sweet, spice, warmth, and overall combination of flavors offering a “wow” factor that is impossible to ignore.
A resurgence of spice comes back with force, again highlighting cinnamon and baking spices but with an underlying nutmeg flavor joining them. A slight nuttiness comes into play as well, with ample amounts of honey, barrel char, and toasted oak persisting into the finish. It is again an impressive display of flavors and just the right intensity, capping a memorable sip.
