Nosing: Rye Ginger Spices Clove Vanilla
Rye spice, Initially has quite an acetone note which drops off over time. Ginger cake, cloves. Some vanilla, but most everything else is overpowered by the spiciness.

Taste: Honey Spices Clove Pepper Caramel
Sweet, and medium to light intensity arrival. Spiciness builds over time. Cloves, pepper, caramel/honey sweetness. The wood oils bring it close to bitter, but is balanced by the sweetness well.

Finish: Spices Clove Oak
Medium length , lots of spiciness, particularly clove oil. Lots of wood, a little sappy and drying over time. Some tannins showing up.

Comment:
Very decent bourbon this. The extra maturation really adds some depth, although I'm not a massive fan of the acetone note on the nose, and the sappy wood note on the finish. Still, good performance, though might be a little pricey for what it is.
