The nose is very soft and delicate. Their are slight hints of vanilla, cherry and wood. It has a real inviting aroma.
The palate comes on initially with cherry and a syrup feel. It reminds me of the Luden's Wild Cherry Cough drops. The more it opens up the more this evolves into a cherry filled tart or turnover. I can even taste the sugar crystal toppings. A warm finish on the tongue with some nice baking spices.
This is a good bourbon, no doubt. However, it's also an expensive bourbon. Lineage reaches past the release of 2014, but overall characteristic may not.
Wait for the bottle cost to drop or try it at your local tavern for a reduced cost and determine for yourself.
