In the glass, the bourbon showcases a captivating, deep mahogany color, glowing with a kaleidoscope of red and amber hues. Its rich coloration is indicative of its long maturation period and the intricate flavor profile it boasts.

Upon the first sip, an explosion of flavors greets the palate—dried cherries, burnt sugar, and dark chocolate are at the forefront. These are superbly balanced by spicy undertones of clove and nutmeg, intertwined with the subtleties of aged leather and tobacco.
The finish is profoundly long, robust, and warming, echoing with complexities of oak tannin, rye spice, and a lingering sweetness. The cask strength ensures that the finish is not just memorable but also deeply affecting.
