I was prepared to be let down by the hype, but every step of the tasting journey far exceeded my expectations. See detailed tasting notes. What a bourbon! Update: 2nd time with different bottle yielded a lesser experience; more bite, more tannins, and harder time teasing out flavors, but still an amazing pour.
I was prepared to be let down by the hype, but that aroma... Beautiful blend of orange peels, honey, caramel, vanilla, stewed fruits (apples and peaches more than red fruit), cinnamon, and floral notes. Best nose I've experienced.
Oranges, caramels, sweet stewed fruits, honey, toasted oak, baking spices, some cinnamon and nutmeg, extremely smooth. Flavors keep unfolding the more you try it.
Long, candied finish, tastes like white rabbit (taffy-like Asian candy). Just stays there and reminds you of the memorable experience you just had.
