NOSE Brown sugar, butterscotch, rye spice, cinnamon, musty oak, dark fruit and light bits of nutmeg and waxy cardboard. That waxy cardboard note mixed with the fruity notes makes me think of the Topps Baseball cards that came with a stick of bubblegum in them. Smells a bit like opening a fresh pack.
PALATE Rye bread, clove, brown sugar, dried grains, vanilla, cinnamon and a bit of dried fruit and wax. Like the aroma there’s an overall essence to this whiskey that reminds me a bit of the bubblegum from Topps Baseball cards.
FINISH Long and spicy with bits of dried grain, dark sweets and fruit throughout.
BALANCE, BODY & FEEL Decent balance, medium body and a waxy feel.
