Aged in 100% Bourbon barrels. Pale straw hue. In the first two minutes concentrated grainy aromas, delicately touched by honey backnotes impress; seven more minutes allow the aroma to evolve into a solid bouquet, notable for its biscuity, wafer-like, poached pear and malty scents. Palate entry is firm, sugar cookie-sweet and displays a welcome hint of oiliness; midpalate is cereal/malty sweet and oily but hardly unctuous as the acidity level is clearly high enough to retain a lovely tartness/crispness. Finishes long, if a bit narrowly focused on the resiny acidity.
