Hay and light oak lead the way. A good swirl of the glass and a deeper inhale reveal hints of vanilla and cinnamon, along with a whiff of peach. There is also an undertone of ethanol, which is surprising considering the bourbon’s lower proof. It's an acceptable yet forgettable way to be introduced to the pour.
The sip greets you with a noticeably thin palate. Cinnamon and dashes of sweet vanilla are instantly noticeable. These however struggle against tannic oak and black pepper spice, which constantly try to swat away these sweeter flavors as they bubble up. This is quite surprising as you normally don’t get this level of spice out of a bourbon clocking in below 90 proof.
Dry oak and leather lead the way and mingle with a noticeable dash of peppercorn spice. Vanilla and butterscotch hard candy make a flash of an appearance before the drier flavors take back over. Thankfully, the finish is on the short side, as the dryness borders on off-putting by the end.
