The nose on 43.4% expression is very floral with some wheaty breakfast biscuits and spicy notes.  The taste is very smooth with baked spiced apples (maybe even slightly burnt) caramel and honey.  The finish has some slow building heat along with some Bovril (salty / meaty) notes.  Reminded me of good Texas barbeque brisket with strong spice bark.  Overall a ittle too much burnt, salty and bitter notes with not enough sweetness to balance it for me.

    The nose has lots of complexity, polished wood, fruits (ripe strawberries) vanilla and at 50% ABV the alcohol can be detected as well.  The taste is powerful and warming.  More juicy fruits and sweet like black cherries and chocolate.  Really rich like a liqueur chocolate.  The finish is quite peppery and dry with some tobacco notes.  This is one of my favorite bourbons so far, absolutely delicious.
