Benchmark by name, benchmark by nature. This really is one for the more well Bourbon producers to beat, and despite its status as an outsider, really warrants some attention - especially if cocktails are on the menu. Nose: Aromatic and quite sweet. Soft toasty spices, salted caramel and vanilla pod earthiness.
Palate: A creamy spirit carrying custard, toffee apple and biscuity notes.
Finish: Cinnamon, chocolate digestives and tangerine.
