Aromas of tea, honey some cinnamon hard candy and notes of cedar. The palate has up front spice, hit of dill but then dry caramel and oak come along on the finish.
Sweet bakery notes jump off the nose: globs of vanilla, gooey chocolate brownies, wet walnuts, and almond cream. The whiskey further develops with aromas of incense oil, lemon curd, and new leather. On the palate there is an increased spiciness that really pops, supported by maple syrup and mint leaf. The finish is nutty with excellent length, showcasing maturity beyond the age statement. The bold flavor and big proof here benefit from a splash of water to bring a mosaic of flavors into better focus.
