Buck Bourbon 8 year old

I bought a bottle of this and was not massively impressed on day one, but it turned out to be one of those whiskies I call a "creeper" and by the end of bottle I loved it.   The nose was sweet with cola, boiled sweets, orange peel and vanilla.  The taste is creamy with sweet caramel and candy corn at first but quckly yields to oaky pepper and spices, like eating caramel covered twigs.  The finish is spicy and long.  Like Toy Story 3 this one is a little predictable and woody but good a choice for 101 World Whiskies To Try Before You Die.
