Flavor Profile


Vanilla, caramel, nut, and oak pop out from the start. Sweet and light at first, these flavors slightly intensify with time in the glass.


The amount of flavors are on the thin side, with healthy amounts of oak and vanilla dominating. The bourbon has a nice roundness to its mouthfeel that makes it a joy to sip, but it’s more of a blunt oaky and sweet vanilla flavor hit, than a complex array of flavors. That said, it’s an enjoyable sip.


Cinnamon and oak aftertaste that does a good job lingering long after the sip. Mild heat and intensity is adequate as it is satisfying, but overall the finish is average at best.

***Nose, Palate & Finish comments are from Breaking Bourbon.
