"Cedar, honey and vanilla arise on the nose of this Tennessee whiskey. The palate opens with oak, followed by an herbaceous sarsaparilla lilt and a long vanilla fade. Adding water coaxes out cedar, maple and a zap of lemon peel-like acidity. Made with a blend of older whiskies."
"Fragrant aromas of fresh fruit and caraway on the nose, with dried banana, buttered corn, black currant, raspberry coulis, and preserves being jarred for winter, along with an earthy warehouse note. Smooth and sweet on the palate, with hints of orange peel, candied orange, cocoa, and root beer. The finish is long and pleasurable, if perhaps a bit less complex than the palate, ending with a reprise of lovely earthiness balancing the fruit." - Whisky Advocate
