Nose: Little besides ethanol comes out of the glass before this bourbon has had a good rest. After some air time, aromas of buttered popcorn, vanilla, and a bit of nougat emerge.
Palate: Simple and lacking much heft or depth. The arrival is buttery and the development is filled with vanilla, before a bit of pepper shows up on the back end. Nothing is offensive or off putting, but it’s devoid of any real complexity.
Finish: Slightly warming. Spicier than the nose or palate with some light pepper, vanilla, and a touch of citrus to round things out. Medium length.
