NOSE:A little light for being a barrel proof bourbon, but has nice notes of caramel, wood, blood oranges, grains, toasted corn bread, rosemary and savory herbs. The Rosemary and savory herbs become a bit bolder when water is added, but not much else changes. PALATE:Wood, caramel, spice, chocolate licorice, grain, fruit leather and vanilla all meander across the palate accompanied by light notes of Necco Wafers and grilled corn. Adding water brings light notes of savory herbs, biscuits and baking flour which replace the wafers and corn. Interesting.
