This bourbon is a deep topaz and amber color with hues of orange and lime. It has notes of candied ginger, sage and lavender with fragrant aromas of fresh pear over layers of vanilla and cedar. It is extremely complex with subtle notes of Bay leaf and burnt toffee. The palate on this bourbon is silky and harmonious, yet robust and intense. Flavors of roasted coffee beans, smoked meats and hazelnut marry harmoniously with spicy notes of cardamom and black pepper and a fresh hint of mint.
