First Sip:Oak, caramel, vanilla, aromas of under-ripe banana and brown sugar
The Burn/Finish:Each sip is greeted by a slow building back of the throat burn that lasts for a long time. It's a very satisfying burn to say the least. While this bourbon isn't very old, I don't think anyone informed the finish of that fact. Well done!
Neat, Splash or Rocks:Neat is just fine, but adding some water can really open t up. Flavors become more pronounced with an increased level of sweetness that was more than acceptable. Could be also enjoyed on the rocks. It somehow feels like a lighter bourbon when on the rocks but doesn't really lose much of its flavor.
This is an example of a multi-tool bourbon. You can enjoy it with your friends who are passionate about their bourbon and they'll love it. You can also feel comfortable sharing it with those who prefer their bourbon in a cocktail. (Please respect the bourbon though and make it a high-end cocktail.) You could even add in some water for those still getting used to bourbon without adulteration.
