The nose is soft. It actually begins with a little of an alcohol / acetone note that morphs to some vanilla and becomes sweet, almost reminding me of a Coke float. A reminder that bourbon is a patient liquid. It takes time to age, evolve and mature. Sometimes a little more time to open up can make all of the difference.
The palate is warm with hints of cherries, cedar and finishes with some robust leather.
