Noticeable light scents o orange, banana peels, vanilla, toasted marshmallows and oak.
The subtlest trace of heat starts the finish, which is composed heavily of pepper and rye spice.It is not as dominant as other high rye bourbons, but it is noticeable enough.As the finish goes on, the flavors morph from pepper and rye into a tasty lingering sweet pear flavor with a tad of oak and a smidge of white pepper.
