"Rich and decadent aromas of orange blossom, caramel cookies, and vanilla custard immediately gratify the senses. These carry over to the palate, where indulgent flavors of candied orange peel, creme brulee, and fig pudding soothe the palate before subtle clove comes through on the finish. Remarkable!"

"Bold and well structured, this Bourbon features warming vanilla and caramel accented by orange peel, stone fruit and a dry baking-spice finish. Sip it with a chunk of ice, or mix up a round of juleps. The trademark round, faceted bottle with the horse-topped cork is perfect for Derby Day." - Kara Newman (9/1/2014)
