General description

Very sweet bourbon which is right up my alley. Notes of vanilla, cherry, cookies, and oak. The heat is tamer in this compared to OWA. Mouth feel is a bit on the light side... if this were bottled at a higher proof it would be absolutely incredible. Great bourbon for the (retail) price.

Nose

Vanilla, sweet, cherry syrup, faint cinnamon, Nilla wafers

Palate

Bursting with sweet notes at first and then evolves to a nice cinnamon spice, like biting into a gooey chocolate chip cookie at first, toasted marshmallow, medium-light mouth feel, caramel, warming heat

Finish

Light, sweet oakiness, dried cherries, light char, slight bitterness comes in after a while on the tongue but it's not near as strong as the WSR or OWA

General description

I don't see it. What all the hype is about on this one. Not much of an initial flavor on the first, second, or third pull. Might have a bad bottle. Will try again at a different whiskey bar.
