Sinful, dark and sweet. This is spicy and slightly salty on the nose, and on the tongue it turns fruity and fragrant. It has a really unctuous mouthfeel as well, which I can't really put into words. Smooth but not oily, mouthfilling but not mouthcoating? This is delicious bourbon. I expect great things of A. Smith Bowman distilleries, and I can't wait to try more of their output.


I like this a lot.
