Nosing: Vanilla Cake Sweet Caramel Almonds Spices Cinnamon Pepper Nutmeg Oak

Taste: Sweet Vanilla Spices Pepper Nutmeg Cinnamon Almonds Oak

Finish: Medium

Comment: A quality product, but this is way too expensive in Australia, I paid $99 AUD for a bottle. It can be purchased at $85 in Australia, but that is still way too high for my liking. At that price point I expect a lot more from a bourbon. I think this product is more at a $60ish price point level. Still, there is some complexity and nuance to it, but WAY overpriced where I am. Sell it somewhere in the $60 range and I'll consider buying again.

Nosing: Sweet Oak Zitrus Butterscotch, Toffee, Leather

Taste: Sharp--Spices Oak : : pepper: Dark--Cherry Vanilla Alcohol

Finish: Medium Finish of Heat Alcohol Spices Oak

Comment: Slight burn in the mouth, but definite burn in the chest. I do not particularly like sharp, spicy, and peppery flavor in my Bourbon. I like hot peppers (jalapenos, and habaneros in food), but not in my Bourbon/Whiskey. This is the same reason that I do not like Rye Bourbon/Whiskey, because of the heavy sharp spicey peppery taste. You are to-eat your spices and peppers, and you follow that with a-drink of-a sweeter Bourbon/Whiskey. One does not drink your spices and peppers, and then eat a bunch of sweeter things, unless you live on candy.
