This tawny Bourbon has a rich, spiced scent reminiscent of fruitcake. On the palate, look for caramel studded with dried cherry, orange peel and clove, finishing quite dry. A great profile for classic cocktails, and not too precious to mix.

Fragrant with cinnamon, floral clover honey, and sweet dried fruit notes. Flavorful: lots of oak, a generous dose of toffee, toasty nutmeg and allspice, finishing with a big bite. Reminiscent of dark gingerbread. Medium body, pleasant, a touch astringent.

Dark gold, with an amber cast. Moderately full-bodied. Nutmeg, dried peach, walnut. Broad, richly spiced, and quite nutty on the palate. A softer note of fruit helps to accent the impression. Subtle, elegant finish.
